Sydney?s Scott Law (Avanti Racing) has claimed the opening stage of the?Lakes Oil Tour of Gippsland, the seventh event in the?Subaru National Road Series. Law took out the 91 kilometre road race in Warragul ahead of teammate and home-town-hero Brenton Jones, while Queensland?s Jacob Restall (Charter Mason) held on for third place after being part of a late breakaway. ?To come away with the win is unbelievable actually,? said Law. ?We only just caught the break going into the last corner. ?I had Brenton on my wheel but once we came around the corner and I saw 200 metre to go sign, I had to sprint from there and we crossed the line first and second which was good,? said the reigning scratch race national champion. Law?s victory puts him into the Tour?s yellow leaders jersey by one second to Jones, who picked up bonus seconds during the race?s intermediate sprint and king of the mountain. ?It was great to see Scott win,? exclaimed Jones. ?He?s been supporting me all year and helping me win races so to see him on top is great. It was a great performance in my home town, it would have been nice to win but to see Scott get up is great,? said the Subaru National Road Series leader. The Tour continues on Thursday with a 115 kilometre road race from Leongatha to Yinnar. 2014 Tour of Gippsland: Stage 1 Photo Gallery 2014 Tour of Gippsland: Stage 1 Results
