Triple treat for Kemps with Ulverstone criterium win

Haas looms large in general classification battle

As the decisive seventh stage of the Tour of Tasmania loomed, V Australia's Aaron Kemps stamped his authority on the race claiming his third win of the week in the Ulverstone Criterium. Joe Lewis (Bikebug.Com) and Kemps' teammate Bernard Sulzberger made up the podium.

The win gave Kemps a three-point lead in the Country Club Criterium Championship but while the order didn't change, a battle for general classification honours well and truly heated up thanks to the efforts of Genesys Wealth Advisers' Nathan Haas.

Haas, already a two-time overall winner in the National Road Series in 2011, used Friday morning's stage to narrow the gap between he and overnight leader, Cam Peterson (V Australia). Haas was assertive from the get-go, claiming points and valuable time bonuses on six of the 11 primes in the 30-lap criterium. Meantime, Peterson featured in just two of the primes.

The Canberra 22-year-old made up 12 seconds to Peterson, with the top 10 set for a shake-up following the 78.5 kilometre stage between Ulverstone and Penguin which will be next on the agenda. Other GC contenders, including the dangerous Jayco-2XU trio of Josh Atkins (third at 22sec), Dale Parker (fourth at 25sec) and Jai Crawford (fifth at 40sec), finished safely within the main bunch to keep Peterson and Haas in check but will no doubt mount an aggressive challenge on the afternoon's eighth stage.
