Jonah Street Puts His Stamp on Stage 9

This is the one for which the fans have been waiting. After a group start of ten riders at a time and a navigational issue by nine of them, today’s results were thrown on their head seeing the usual leaders dropping back quite a few spots while Helder Rodrigues, Jonah Street, Frans Verhoeven, and David Casteu stormed to the top of the time sheets. After a few days of misfortune, Street would not be denied, pulling out a 47" lead over Rodrigues at the second to last waypoint.


As the riders came into the stage finish, several lower placed riders first as they were physically in front of the time leaders, the excitement built to a fever pitch as Jonah stormed across the line a dominant 3'38" over 2nd place Verhoeven and 3'40" over 3rd place Casteu. A late stage problem saw Rodrigues drop more than 27' in the last 27 kilometers of the stage.


Well done Jonah!!!
