Bad day at the office for Plowman Craven RT

The final stage of the Redlands Classic didn't quite end up as planned for Plowman Craven RT, despite Simon Richardson sitting comfortably on GC, close to the top 20, and with a course profile in front of him that was going to suit his style of climbing, and the possibility of moving up on GC.

But the team was affected by the two early crashes, having five of the six riders go down in one of them, including Richardson. Alex Higham, Tom Barras, Neil Coleman and Simon Gaywod were the other unlucky ones. Only Evan Oliphant could avoid it and stayed in the 20-man strong front group.
