Grenfell wins in Merbein

Shaw remains in leader's jersey

Philip Grenfell (Bikebug.com) won the first of two stages on tap for Saturday, a 33km criterium in Merbein. The Bikebug.com squad made it a one-two finish as Grenfell's teammate Joe Lewis finished second, while West Australian Michael Freiberg (V Australia) crossed the line in third.

Grenfell, the Taree Terrier, is a former rower who took up cycling 12 months ago through the encouragement of Bikebug team manager Trent Wilson.

Patrick Shaw (Genesys Wealth Advisers) remains in the leader's jersey with a nine-second lead on Steele Von Hoff (Genesys Wealth Advisers) and a 29-second advantage over Adam Phelan (Drapac Professional Cycling).
