Davison survives late race carnage to win in Nelson

Giacoppo extends general classification lead

After scoring his breakthrough National Road Series victories at the Tour of Gippsland earlier this month, Luke Davison (Budget Forklifts) has taken his tally to four by winning the Stage 2, 75.9 kilometre afternoon road stage at the Tour of the Great South Coast.

The result, with teammate Ryan MacAnnally finishing second on the stage, improving on his third place in the morning's opening stage, capped an impressive performance for Budget Forklifts. Jack Beckinsale (Croydon Cycleworks) was third.

"It's great for team morale and picks up everybody else," Davison said following the 1-2 result for his team.

"I just try and take every day as it comes.

"I wasn’t expecting this, I just wanted to position myself as best I could and try and avoid the carnage."

Anthony Giacoppo (Genesys) finished fourth, extending his overall lead to 13 seconds over MacAnnally. The West Australian, said it went some of the way to making up for losing the overall lead at Gippsland to eventual winner, Will Walker (Drapac).

"It's definitely some extra motivation and it makes you hungrier," he explained. "Hopefully this week everything goes to plan."

Current NRS and Scody Cup leader Walker was forced to abandon after around 20kms of racing due to a medical concern. He was taken to hospital.

Despite a few determined efforts, no rider was able to gain significant time on the peloton and so coming into the final 10kms, the race was all together.

A Budget rider took advantage of the small lumps with six kilometres to go before the fast downhill to the finish, gaining a maximum of 80 metres before being brought back to the bunch three kilometres later following a determined chase by Genesys.

The road was blocked by a crash with two kilometres left to race, holding up the bunch. Four riders were taken to hospital with Dion Smith (Pureblack Racing) fracturing his collarbone. Several teams lost three or more riders to the chaos.

Neil Van Der Ploeg (Search2Retain) confirmed his solid form, by taking the lead in the sprint classificationon a count back from Giacoppo with the pair tied on 15 points apiece.

The Tour of the Great South Coast continues on Thursday with a 36km criterium in Heywood.
