Peloton Cafe || 2014 Tour of Tasmania – Josh Berry

The Sydney-based Cellarbrations Racing Team has continued its rapid rise to prominence in the Subaru National Road Series with a series of breakout results at the recently completed Tour of Tasmania. The result was headlined by Wollongong-based Josh Berry, who finished 8th overall and 1st on the SRAM King of the Mountains Classification. But Berry was far from alone, with exciting Inverell Under 19 Dylan Sunderland also securing 6th in the Young Rider Classification (32nd overall) and Scott Bradburn finishing in a fine 23rd on GC. Despite completing the six-stage Tour with only three riders, CRT also managed to finish 5th on the overall Team Classification, ahead of several of the NRS?s largest squads, capping a landmark week for the young team. ?This is the toughest tour on the NRS calendar, both from a perspective of terrain and weather, so to finish fifth ahead of teams like Budget Forklifts is just a massive achievement in our first NRS season,? said a justifiably proud Team Director, Russell Menzies. ?After finishing just outside the top-10 at the recent National Capital Tour, Josh was outstanding yet again,? continued Menzies. ?Especially on Stage 4 when he won both of the?KOMs to secure the overall polka-dot jersey ? that?s our first ever classification victory in the NRS. But really, the whole squad was just outstanding this week and worked so hard as a unit to look after Josh, and each other, it?s such a satisfying moment for all of us.? Next up for Cellarbrations Racing Team is the 273km Melbourne to Warrnambool Classic on Saturday 11 October, the 99th edition of Australia?s oldest road race. A fortnight later the 2014 NRS season concludes with the gruelling Grafton to Inverell Classic. Cellarbrations Racing Team squad for 2014 Melbourne to Warrnambool: Josh Berry, Kris Johnston, Matt Slee, Aaron Watts, Andreas Pihl Neilsen (U23), Andrew Arundell.
