Nineteen-year-old Beckinsale takes tough win in Maffra

The youth squad of Eclipse Pro Cycling, Jayco-Honey Shotz continues to impress with Jack Beckinsale outwitting his more experienced rivals to win Stage 6 of the Tour of Gippsland on Friday. The win backed up his second placing on Stage 2 on Wednesday.

Will Walker (Drapac) earned his team another podium in second after Mal Rudolph won the morning stage, and took third earlier in Moe. Brenton Jones (Team Torq / Bicycle Superstore) meanwhile sprinted to third position in the dash for the line collecting his fourth podium of the National Road Series this season.

"I've got two seconds and one third but to get my first stage win, I'm pretty happy," said Beckinsale. "Our whole team's pretty young - the oldest is turning 20 this year.

"We're racing against guys who we look up to and a few of them have gone overseas for pro races, so it's good to race against them."

The Sydney-based rider knew that Stage 6 would be a test of wills so was prepared to bide his time and wait to strike
"On the last road stage yesterday, I got dropped on the second climb,” he said. “I went pretty hard on the first KOM and tried my guts out.

"Today I tried to conserve."

In the battle for the general classification, Luke Davison (Budget Forklifts) clawed back five seconds on leader Anthony Giacoppo (Genesys) on both an intermediate sprint and hill climb, with just three seconds now separating the pair heading into tomorrow's seventh stage.

Stage 6 is the Tour of Gippsland's longest at 102km featuring two tough climbs from the mid-way point once the riders hit the Mitchell River National Park.

There was several attempts at forming a breakaway in the first 40km, but due to the tour's format and the high stakes that ensue, no one was allowed a gap of any great distance.

With 30km left to race, Darren Lapthorne took his chances in a solo escape which at its peak, was around 100m on the field which split under the pressure of the race. He was ultimately caught with four kilometres remaining.

"I was feeling pretty good and I know these roads because I've trained a lot here before," he said.

"I gave it a shot but I knew they were getting closer."

Lapthorne has been in scintilating form in the lead up to race so it was no surprise to see him taking his chances. His efforts on Friday afternoon earned him the title of most aggressive rider for the stage.

"But we're probably riding for Will Walker now to try and get him up in the GC," Lapthorne admitted.

The Tour of Gippsland continues on Saturday with a morning 33km criterium in Bairnsdale followed by a 69.3 km road race between Lakes Entrance and Metung.
