Tour of New Zealand

Stage 3 

Masterton Criterium  - 2 March 2006   18:00hrs

Race write up

The criterium in Masterton was held under relatively calm conditions, compared to the previous evening, when the wind blew hard down Lower Hutt High Street. It was still cool, however the pace was high and the riders would not have felt the evening's chill until they finished.

The opening laps were run off at a 2 minute 20 seconds pace. Within the first ten minutes, though the pace rose and did not fall again. The lap times dropped to 2 minutes 8 seconds on average. This meant that any breakaway attempt which managed to gain any daylight off the front of the bunch did not have the legs to stay away.

More disparate than the Stage 1 criterium, with tired legs showing, riders were lapped by the main bunch as the slower riders rode around in groups. In a more organised manner than Stage 1, the lapped riders were pulled out of the race, leaving the main bunch to complete the final 3 laps and contest the finish.

The finishing straight was a short affair of around 150m, coming after a tight right hand corner, a short, 50m straight and then a left turn onto the final straight. As the race turned the corner, the pro Team Univegas seemed to have built the lead out for the sprint perfectly. Joanne Kiesonowski came out of the shelter of Nicole Cooke's wheel too early though. The result was a lead out for Ina-Yoko Teutenberg instead. Kiesonowski fought valiantly, but she was beaten. Teutenberg took her second victory in a day. Giorgia Bronzini was third again.
