2014 Tour of Tasmania: Stage 3 Photo Gallery

Hobart?s?Jai Crawford?has continued Drapac Pro Cycling?s impressive Tour of Tasmania performance, clinching victory in picturesque Grindelwald, after dropping his early breakaway group on the final ascent. Under sunny skies in stark contrast to the first two wet stages, Crawford joined a breakaway group within the first 30 kilometres and never looked back. Having conquered the last King of the Mountain point, local rider Crawford attacked to cross the line solo, six seconds ahead of chasers?Patrick Bevin?(Search2Retain Cycling) and?Michael Jaeger?(Peloton Sports). ?I?ve ridden up there before, but not recently ? it was a few years ago and I couldn?t remember it very well,? Crawford admitted after the 93 kilometre stage. ?But talking to my teammates they had said that once you get to the King of the Mountain you drop down and it is two kilometres to go. It was a bit tough when I saw it was actually three kilometres, and it didn?t really drop down! I just put my head down and gritted my teeth.? Text via Cycling Australia Media Release
