Australia's Rice grabs Bahati victory

Nielsen leads strong NZ showing

Tasmanian Matt Rice (Bahati Foundation) took the win Wednesday afternoon at the classic Lake Front Long road course in Milwaukee by Lake Michigan. This was the 13th stage of the International Cycling Classic/Superweek series.

Early in the race, seven riders got off the front and Rice quickly bridged up. The breakaway then swelled to 13 riders – including David Kemp (Fly V Australia), three riders from Hotel San Jose and German rider Bastian Faltin (Stevens Racing Team).

The lead group of 13 riders worked well together until the last lap of the 150K race, when numerous attacks were initiated. Two kilometres from the finish, three riders broke away but Rice held steady. Eight hundred meters from the finish, Rice bridged to the three leading riders and kept going to the finish line, winning by a couple seconds.

“It’s been a trying week for the Bahati team,” Rice said. “So this is a sweet victory for me and the team.”
