2011 Tour de Tablelands

Day 1.

3 M1 riders and 1 support crew made there way up to the tablelands to fly the green and orange flag at this popular bike race.

B grade had a 72km scratch race which took the bunch through Lake Tinaroo. The race was full of breaks, which had Lord Garmin and a few other blokes chase down every time. All LG's hardwork payed off, going down the road in a two man break away in the last 5km. Unfortunately, LG could not pull in Wallie Dingo, who went down the road earlier. Mick got nipped in the sprint, and took home a noble 3rd place.

Soon after that, the main bunch came in, with Thunder taking 4th place by taking out the bunch sprint.

Cat rode extremely well in the 57km C grade scratch race, holding strong in the race, and coming in with the bunch sprint.

Stay tuned for Stage 2 of The 2011 Tour de Tablelands.
