After an aggressive first 80km of racing a big break of riders was finally established containing Ben, the group built an advantage of over 1min on the peloton. Over the final 10km there was a number of attacks with Ben going long with 8km remaining he was caught with 2k to go by the break group and came in within the Top 20 riders @ 15sec to the winner.
Charlie, Alex and Brad came in at the head of what remained of the main field a further 40sec back.
With Colin and Rob a couple of minutes further back.
A good start to the race and onto tomorrow!
