Great tactical racing to try and break and then to hold off Nino Schurter.

Nerve wracking to watch even though I already knew the result.

Starting at 30 too!

Too much power on that last sprint, looks like Schurter was spinning before he slipped a pedal. Couldn’t match What Sam was putting out.

Good race by Anton as well, 2 Kiwi’s in top 6 in the elites must be unprecedented also.

VDP had an awesome race too 47th to 4th.

Watched Gaze take out the National Criterium Champs earlier this year.

Gaze came into the home straight on the front of 3 of them, I assumed Alex Ray would thank him for the lead out come around and take the win, but Gaze just powered off the front of them. I knew as they came around the last corner that Gaze had it from Schurter.
