Stage 5 Men Elite

Australian Road Race Darren Lapthorne took the final stage of the Jayco Bay Cycling Classic. The 25 year old rider won after a solo attack with 13 minutes remaining. Lapthorne will race with German Continental Team Sparkasse this year and was very happy with his stage win after his nasty crash in the second stage of the Australian stage race.

Only 21 riders finished the tough second stage and Aussie Mark Renshaw was the smiling overall winner. Renshaw came in second at the final stage and that was enough to defend his 2007 title. Allan Davis came in third and is second overall. Renshaw and Davis both have 40 points in the overall, but Renshaw2 had better results in the stages and intermediate sprints.

Women Elite

Olympic champion Sara Carrigan  won the final stage of the women's race. Carrigan repeated her 2006 stage win at the same circuit. Mega Dunn finished fourth in the final stage and that was enough to defend her overall lead. Sixteen year old Dunn is the youngest overall winner ever of the Jayco Bay Cycling Classic.
