PIONEER PUTS ON LONGEST DAY AS RIDERS EDGE CLOSER TO QUEENSTOWN

It was always going to be the longest day on The Pioneer Mountain Bike Stage Race and so it proved on Stage Five as riders made their way from Lake Ohau to Lake Hawea, climbing close to 4000m as they took on 107km of forest tracks, river crossings, flying descents and South island landmark the Lindis Pass.

 

Anton Cooper (NZL) and Dan McConnell (AUS) continued their dominance of the race winning the Stage by just under nine minutes and may well have shut the door on the chasing Kona Factory teams once and for all, their overall lead of 41:34 surely now only at risk if there is a mechanical failure for either of the two.

 

Barry Wicks (USA) is one of those chasing, along with team mate Kris Sneddon (CAN) the Kona Factory B team are third, some 45 minutes behind the Kiwi/Aussie duo but just under four minutes back from Kona team mates Spencer Paxson (USA) and Cory Wallace (CAN).
