Shaw surges to victory atop You Yangs

Pollock moves into overall lead

Patrick Shaw (Virgin Blue RBS Morgan) won stage 2 of the GMHBA Tour of Geelong atop the climb of You Yangs. The 24-year old dislodged Stuart Smith (Jayco VIS) and race leader Rhys Pollock (Drapac) in the final push to the line to win by six seconds.

Pollock extended his lead in the general classification to 36 seconds as he managed to press clear of Dennis Rohan (Team Jayco Skins) in the finale. Shaw’s stage win brings him up to third place overall. Pollock’s Drapac teammate Joseph Lewis lies in fourth, 47 seconds down, while Stuart Smith (Jayco VIS) and the experienced Gordon McCauley round out the top six.

Like the morning’s criterium, the 79 km stage from Lara was run off in cold, wet and windy conditions, which Pollock says worked to his advantage.

“I don’t seem to feel the cold as much as everybody else,” he explained. “I felt really good today and it’s exciting to be wearing the yellow jersey. I’ve got to get over Friday’s time trial at Portarlington but I’m reasonably confident because our Drapac team is combining beautifully.”

There was some bad luck for Chris Jongewaard (McDonagh Blake-Wintess), making his first appearance in a major event since the 2009 Australian Open Road Championship. He crashed during the morning criterium at North Shore and sustained a suspected broken elblow. He took to the start line for stage two, but was forced to abandon at the 35km mark due to his injuries.
