Stage 2 - Bring on the hills
Luckily Sean, and a fellow competitor (My best mate No.33) worked and rejoined with approx 5klm to go. It wasn’t long until we hit the 1k to go, and things got messy! Riders hit holes, each other, and Sean hit a gap, and snuck over second in the pack sprint to claim 3rd for the stage.
Stage 3 - Race the Rain
Stage 4 - Cracker of a CritWith Sean full of excuses as to why he hadn’t won a stage yet, it was his last chance to have a go. And with that he got in a break away, and even saw the front a couple of times (alleged only, no proof available). Matt Vagg worked well blocking the chasing pack, and even threw himself to the ground on the final lap to slow up the chase. All went to plan and Sean finally had a go and found himself across the line first.
Other theories have it that Matt was after an excuse as to why Sean beat him in the GC, and thought a broken collar bone should do the trick.
