Tour of Malta Stage 4

Stage 4 Tour Ta Malta

After a few hard days of racing it was time for the queen stage. With Dave lying in second on GC it was obvious that there would have to be a big effort to get him on to the top step of the podium and so Josh and Cam set about chasing down early attacks and setting the pace. With the climb being included in every lap, it was key that the team did not burn its matches too soon. When the road went upwards, the race consistently got tougher with myself ensuring that attacks were minimised and huge efforts were made by us all to get Dave in the best possible position for the final ascent. By the last lap the race was smashed to pieces due to the teams work and as we planned and true to his word, Dave and Matty broke away on the final time up the climb, pulling away a sizeable gap. Matty was then able to take the stage win, with Dave coming in behind and myself in third. Josh rolled into the finish followed by Cam after working tirelessly. The work displayed by the boys was dominant and pretty much summed up the last four days of impressive racing.
