Battling wind, rain and hail, local rider Wesley Sulzberger (Drapac Pro Cycling) has clinched the Tour of Tasmania?s second stage, holding on as his initial four-man breakaway was whittled down to just two riders for the final sprint. Sulzberger outpaced 18-year-old Ben O?Connor (Satalyst Giant) on the ride into New Norfolk at the end of a challenging 119.9 kilometre course from the banks of Lake Pedder in Strathgordon. Ahead of his home town stage on Wednesday, Launceston-born Sulzberger was pleased with the victory, alongside a fifth-place finish for brother Bernard (Drapac Pro Cycling). ?I was actually hoping to go up the road tomorrow because my mum and dad and sister and mother-in-law will be there watching,? the former Orica-GreenEDGE cyclist commented post-race. ?So a day early, but I?m really happy with the win!?
