Perth Crit Series, Race 3, Leederville.Round 3 of the perth Crit Series was held in the cappicino strip of Leederville. On a very tight 800m curcuit.
Support Race; On a tight curcuit it is hard for riders to move up through the bunch when the race is at a very high pace. Unfortunately this happened to a few of our guys, bad positioning and tired legs made it hard for everyone. But in the end William Heath(Energy Hr) crossed the line in 4th. Sam Smith(EHBS), after doing abit too much work during the race crossed the line in 6th place. This unfortunately meant that Sam lost the yellow jersey, but moved Will up into equal first wth Graig Cooke and Sam slipped down to 3rd. The boys will have an exciting race tomorrow get the yellow back again.
Ladies Race; Right from the start the attacking was on, Nicole Whitburn and Sarah-Jeanne Fraser tried there luck. But again it was Emma Pooley and Nicole Cooke that left the rest and would never be caught. In the Bunch sprint Nicole Whitburn finished 6th on the night with Sarah-Jeanne Fraser just outsdie the top 10.
Open Race; With the WA Head Office of Genenis Wealth Advisers in Leederville, the Genenis Team where always going to control the evening and come away with the win. Loic and Dylan got caught behind a crash and this pretty much ended their night. Eddy Hollands tried a few times to get away from the bunch but was chased down, this left Michael Frieburg to have a go in the finish but he was borked in the last hairpin turn and rolled across the line in 10th place.
So not a great night for the EHBS and Energy HR teams but I am sure they will sort it all out tomorrow night in Fremantle.
