Spirit of Tasmania Tour of Tasmania Subaru National Road Series race report presented by Blue Dinosaur.

Just like your favourite Netflix series, the season finale only leaves you excited for what's to come, with only temporary conclusions but mainly a whole lot of new questions and wondering where the hell the last 11 months went.

The increased depth of teams, talented u23 riders and cycling’s popularity rise has seen the series ran and won again by IsoWhey Sports - Swiss Wellness p/b Cervélo (well done), but look deeper and you’ll see they only won 1 tour and 2 one-day classics. We saw NSWIS outclass a lot of teams with aggressive racing especially in criteriums, we saw Drapac Pat's Veg at more races with a lot of fire power, we had a relatively new team, InForm Tineli emerge with a very talented crop of Victorian youngsters and Oliver's Real Food Racing stole the show at Battle on the Border in soaring temperatures.

It was all set-up perfectly for the final show down with a lot to play for between teams, rumours of what the rankings would mean for next season, transfer rumours circulating and with all teams seemingly going UCI Continental or folding and new ones expected to emerge.

We came in with high hopes and a desire to correct some elements of our performances, in what I’ve found to be the most challenging season to date. For 2017, we had an expanded program, taking on UCI races in New Zealand and the USA whilst trying to balance the NRS. After a strong start to the year, we then struggled our way through the middle section of NRS races. To be sitting in 5th position with one race remaining wasn’t reflective of our goals and we had a lot to improve on. The race started with a 670m up hill prologue that last year Peter Livingstone finished 3rd on in the rain. This year, some fast times all seemed to come from mountain bikers masquerading as roadies, with their skills and power showing through. Peter managed 10th, which he was unhappy about, with most of riders feeling similar about their efforts.

Stage 1, we had a plan to take the race up the road, we expected many teams to want to wait for the Grindelwald climb at the finish to do the damage, and we believed we had the strongest team in the race. We would force others to chase as we had many cards to play. The plan worked well, after an initial moved was reeled in, Pete attacked, Liam Magennis followed, a few others attempted, but only Angus Lyons made it across. A three man break, two mobius and one NSWIS, we thought the bunch would be silly to let it go, but the three just powered away and the gap went to 3 minutes and the peloton decided to take a nature break. The riders worked well all the way to the finish, Pete did the majority of the work in the run in to the climb, with the aim to keep Gus fresh and hope he could stay away for the win. At the base, Gus launched, Liam rode his tempo in a hope that he could reel him back in. Half way up, Pete attacked over the top and bridged across to Gus. They then swapped off all the way to line, in what can only be described as the slowest and most nervous 3kms of my life. In the car we were super excited, we had seen all season what these guys have sacrificed and to see them cross the line together on such an iconic stage was incredible.

Stage 2 was the Queen Stage up to Poatina, we were cautious of letting it be a purely climbers race, as we we didn't think this suited our strengths, but we decided that we would give Gus, Pete, Ethan Berends and Jesse Coyle the chance to try and stay with the top climbers. Dylan, Aden, and Conor did an awesome job of controlling the race at the start to ensure the right mix went in the breakaway. From here it was simple to the base, where unfortunately we suffered a mechanical. Pete’s chain broke, despite the wear level, despite that the quick link was new at the start of the race and had worked perfectly the previous days. Pete ended up losing a few more minutes, but Gus, Jesse and Ethan all rode well to stay up there, although Alexander Evans showed his climbing prowess and rode away to win the stage.

Stage 3 was another day we earmarked for its potential craziness. In what has to be one of the hardest starts to a race in a long time, with two hard KOM’s in the middle, followed by a new uphill finish. With the new GC leaders being from smaller teams, it meant the attitude was all in from everyone to isolate these leaders and then make them work harder and try and take time back. We had a tough day, we had a non GC rider make the move, so we needed him to sit on the threatening breakaway and wait for our riders to try and get across. Gus and Pete made the right split over Gunns Plains, with Ethan and Jesse just behind, the two groups came together, and Gus attacked up the final climb to move himself up to third on GC. Dylan held on in the breakaway, with numerous attempts to go solo, not quite working, he finished 5th with Gus coming home in 6th.

Stage 4, the final day and GC still tight, we had the aim to try and create a GC split, to try and pressure the two riders in front. The split worked, but Lionel Mawditt, (2nd on GC) also made the move, leaving the current yellow jersey back in the peloton. Ethan Berends rode out of his skin in a sensational effort and the break held on, with Gus getting enough time to move into 2nd overall. Ethan leapfrogged Jesse Coyle to go into 9th on GC and Jesse held on for 10th on GC. A great tour, we rode very well as a unit and raced all out for the win on every stage. A great consolation was managing to win the teams GC, which was cool to have everyone up on the podium together at the finish.

The tour was extra special having incredible staff support from Warren Docker who we are sure only has 6 jokes and 1 noise level, but is a wealth of experience, hard working and great fun. We also were joined by Cafe guru James Naylor who was like a ninja and nailed every aspect of his role, impressing everyone where we got to our record low cost per person per meal of $5.22! We've never been so well fed and looked after!

Next up, we have Tour of Bright in Victoria at the start of December to conclude our racing for 2017, before preparing for a step up in 2018. A massive thank you to everyone who continues to support and follow our team and our sponsors who have been with us every step of the way and will be returning in 2018, joined by a few additional ones.
