Pearson wins criterium

Howard holds overall lead

Local Warrigul boy Joel Pearson (Savings and Loans) proved he was back in full form after taking the stage 5 criterium leg of the Tour of Gippsland this morning.

Pearson, 26, took the 30 lap race followed by race favourite and current yellow jersey holder Leigh Howard (Jayco AIS) and Tobias Boylan (Dixon Homes) from Bundaberg Cycling Club.

Pearson, who was involved in a car accident in 2008 and placed in an induced coma due to injuries, with help from teammate David Pell, was able to get into perfect position in the sprint and pip Howard at the line to take the stage.

He praised his teammates while accepting the stage honours, but also acknowledged Howard's strength in the tour so far. "I made sure I marked Leigh through to the finish," said Pearson.

Malcolm Rudolph (Team Budget Forklifts) won the Sprint Champion jersey while Joel Pearson now holds the Criterium Championship honour ahead of Leigh Howard and Kyle Marwood (Praties Cycling Team).
