Tour de Lasalle - Stage 5 - Matty Dobbing reporting:
The final stage to round off the week, this was a fast flowing crit with 4 bends consisting of 90 degree turns. All of the lads started near to the front in case the race decided to go from the gun. The first part of the race was neutralised due to a head wind. I clipped off the front early staying away with another rider for a few laps then again with another rider but to no avail. David Reece then got in the next few breaks also keeping himself towards the front with Cameron Foster and Joe Howcroftsafely tucked in from the wind. As the race progressed into the last few laps the pace was really high meaning bunch positioning was crucial as everyone was fighting for gaps. A few riders got away in the final few laps, but with the strength in the bunch we thought it would come back. I then made sure he stayed near the front before launching his sprint to take 8th in the category with all the other riders safely finishing and rounding off an amazing week of racing.
