NRS – Stage Two 2013 Santos North West Tour

Stage Two of the Santos North West Tour was a 30 lap, 33km criterium through Narrabri in New South Wales.

The top ten placings of the morning’s first stage, an individual time trial was dominated by Huon Salmon-Genesys Wealth Advisors and Budget Forklifts and it would appear these are the two teams to beat this weekend.

The afternoon’s second stage was won by Budget’s Jessie Kerrison in a frantic sprint to the finish line. He out sprinted Brenton Jones of Huon Salmon-Genesys Wealth Advisors and Russell Gill of Euride Racing.

The morning’s windy conditions continued into the afternoon and the day’s second stage was completed in a strong headwind, making conditions difficult for riders.

Aaron Donnelly (Huon) and Jack Anderson (Budget) found good legs for the second time by repeating their top ten finishes from the morning in the afternoon stage. Neil Van der Ploeg of Search2Retain once again found himself with a top ten placing.

The day ended with Jack Haig in the leaders jersey after taking out the Individual Time Trial in the morning session.

Stage Three is a 105km road race from Bingara to Narrabri.
