Van Uden claims explosive road stage in Manangatang

Roman Van Uden (PureBlack Racing) has won the 13th Stage of the Tour of Murray River from Caleb Jones (GPM Wilson Racing) and overall leader, Luke Davison (Team Budget Forklifts).

Davison extended his general classification lead by six seconds.

The win was not only Van Uden's first in the Australian National Road Series, but also his first for the season.

"I'm pretty happy to finally get a result," he said.

Van Uden made his move following a sharp turn 500 metres out from the finish line.

"I just had to be at the front going into that corner," he said. "Louis [Crosby] gave me a perfect lead-out."

Getting the 47km final road stage off to a blistering start, SASI went to the front of the peloton and soon enough, Glenn O'Shea, Miles Scotson, Harry Carpenter and George Tansley moved ahead and built a 30 second lead as the quartet raced up the Mallee Highway.

Prior to the stage, up to eight riders were in the running to take out the KOM classification, however SASI's escape resulted in Carpenter taking the last KOM on offer for the tour, and left Joshua Taylor (GPM Wilson Racing) with a one-point lead to claim the Beechworth Bakery King of the Mountains Championship.

The quartet held a maximum advantage of 30 seconds before being slowly reeled in by the peloton and after 27km out in front, was finally caught.

The race then stayed together for the final run into Manangatang.

Carpenter was the big mover of the stage, courtesy of him collecting maximum points over the two intermediate sprints and one KOM. The SASI young gun moved from fifth, 52 seconds behind Davison, to equal third with Campbell Flakemore (Genesys Wealth Advisers), at 49 seconds. He was rightfully awarded the most aggressive prize for the stage.

The Tour of Murray River concludes on Sunday with a 60km criterium in Swan Hill where Davison is quietly confident of holding on to his race lead.

"It's not over 'til it's over but I think we'll go into tomorrow and try and stay out of trouble and stay at the front," he said.
