Davison forces way into winning breakaway to win Moama Criterium

Luke Davison (Team Budget Forklifts) has claimed his eighth victory of the 2012 National Road Series after a calculated display in Moama. Drapac's Malcolm Rudolph was second, Alex Wohler (Team Downunder) third - the trio finishing two seconds ahead of the remnants of the breakaway which proved Davison's launch pad to the stage win.

Overnight general classification leader Joel Pearson (Genesys Wealth Advisers) increased his advantage on teammate and rival Anthony Giacoppo by a further five seconds, to 15 seconds courtesy of intermediate bonus where the Australian Criterium Champion failed to figure.

The pressure was on from the opening laps with blustery conditions and a fast race pace meant that gaps opened up in the field straight away in the 39km criterium.

An attacking raid by Josh Taylor (GPM Wilson Racing) in the opening four intermediate sprints increased his lead in the Tasco Inland Sprint Championship despite the best-efforts of Pat Shaw (Genesys Wealth Advisers).

Several riders attempted to move ahead of the bunch but it was at the back end of the 30-lap race where a move was ultimately successful. Between the eighth and ninth sprint, Glenn O’Shea (SASI), Rudolph, Oliver Kent-Spark (John West Cycling) and Aaron Donnelly (Jayco-Honey Shotz) made a move on the field and soon earned a 13 second advantage.

The teams from Genesys and Drapac led the chase but another group of riders could see an opportunity to bridge across. Davison, Wohler, Campbell Flakemore (Genesys Wealth Advisers), Joe Cooper (PureBlack Racing) and Shaw joined the original four out the front with two laps remaining.
