Wonderful Racing:
Another great National Road Cycling Championship with Miles Scotson pulling off a classic move in the last couple of Kilometres to defeat Gerro and Haasy. Blue Mountains rider Amanda Spratt almost doing it again finishing second to team mate Katrin Garfoot.
Local Orange cyclist Tim Guy withdrew from the National Road Championship after 7 laps. After a leg snapping start Tim was hanging on okay on the hill but was a victim of a group dropped after a surge out of one of the corners. He will now prepare for his Attaque Team Gusto next event the 2017 Herald Sun Tour.
