Portarlington peninsula turned on the heat and the wind for the third stage of the men?s Michelton Bay Cycling Classic, creating some difficult conditions for the riders as they rode the 1.3 kilometre circuit. The race eventually came down to a 15 man bunch sprint, with Patrick Shaw (Avanti IsoWhey) emerging victorious after an active showing throughout the race. Daniel Fitter (State of Matter/MAAP) sprinted to 2nd making it a 1-2 for NRS teams over their more fancied rivals, as Samuel Spokes (Drapac) was third and series leader Caleb Ewan (Orica-Greenedge) was 4th.
