Tasmania’s Ben Grenda (Genesys Wealth Advisers Cycling) has become the 2010 champion of the Goulburn-Citi Cycle Classic, which finished in the main street of Camden as part of Cycling Australia’s National Road Series. While the overall honours went to Grenda it was Fly V Australia’s Jonathan Cantwell who claimed the 170 kilometre road race from Goulburn to Camden on Sunday.

The victory was both Cantwell’s and Fly V Australia’s biggest on home soil this year, after both team and rider spent the year focused on the USA Cycling National Racing Calendar.

Australia’s top cyclists left Goulburn this morning under perfect racing conditions for the 170km journey up the Hume Hwy finishing in Camden’s CBD as part of the events expansion into a two day race.

After an early but unsuccessful attack 11 riders escaped from the 150-strong field after 14km, with the time gap steadily growing to what seemed an irretrievable 5:40 minutes. Eventual team’s classification winners Genesys Wealth Advisers were fortunate to have two members of its team in the breakaway group, which was caught following the first Razorback climb after Picton, allowing the race to come back together before the final Old Razorback Road ascent.

“The race looked like it was over very early when 11 riders got away just out of Goulburn, we had no choice other than chase the leaders down,” said Cantwell. “We couldn’t afford to just let them get away.”

Old Razorback Road split the remaining lead group of 50 riders, which reformed on Macarthur Bridge with three kilometres remaining. A fast descent into Camden allowed the stage winner Cantwell to launch a final sprint to the finish line.

Grenda was declared the overall winner of the Goulburn to Citi Cycle Classic, which expanded to a two stage race for the first time this year. Second place went to Scott Law (Fly V Australia) and third to Rhys Pollock (Drapac Porsche).

“Everything went to plan with our two nominated riders in the early breakaway, we knew that Ben Grenda has been in good form and could do well over the two days,” said Genesys team manager Andrew Christie-Johnston.

The King of the Mountain category was won by Cameron Peterson (Virgin Blue RBS Morgans) with Alexander Malone (Bike Bug) winning the sprinters jersey.
