Race Breakaway Survives To Give Goss Victory

Shortly into Race 4, Belinda Goss broke away with two others - Helen Kelly and Lorian Graham. They managed to stay away and increased their lead to almost half the circuit by the time they took the bell for the final lap. Goss took the sprint from Kelly quite easily, whilst Graham finished 3rd several lengths behind the pair. 

The bunch sprint for 4th was won by Kate Bates. Hayley Rutherford was fifth. 

The overall competition is still being led by Kate Bates now on 33 points - 4 ahead of Hayley Rutherford on 28pts. Yesterday's winner, Elizabeth Williams is third, on 27 points. 

The Sprints competition is also led by Bates, from Gollan and Carrigan.
