Tour of Malta. STAGE 2

Stage 2 of the tour ta Malta

Matty Dobbing

On a hilly, windy pretty grippy day. David and Matty quickly established a gap in the break of 4 riders, keeping the pedals turning allowing cam, Josh and Harry to keep a watch on us while making sure the bunch was getting smaller every lap, so that we could control it better. Matty then decided to attack the break after a slowing in the pace pulling a gap of 10seconds out up the climb. Meanwhile behind the other 3 riders got caught by what was left of the bunch, this then left an opportunity for the other 4 lads to try and jump across. The first of which was Harry who jumped across in less than half a lap quickly followed Dave in a massive effort to jump across, pulling the gap upto 35seconds but building every lap which was brilliantly controlled by cam and Josh. Leading into the last lap Dave suffered a mechanical down the climb. Meanwhile Harry and Matty pulled the gap to 1 minute, both Matty and Harry took the time to celebrate. Matty taking the win and Harry taking over the overall, and Josh cleaning up the sprint taking 3rd followed by cam In 5th and dave in 11th. The gc standings at the moment are Harry leading, Matty in 2nd, Josh in 3rd, cam in 5th and dave in the top 10. Brilliant team work lead to an amazing result for the team. 2 stages still remaining.
