Hatton takes Ride for Life after tactical start and finish
By Karen Forman
Choosing to jump across to join an early breakaway then selecting the right wheel to lead out his uphill sprint for the line proved winning tactics for Clarence Street rider Peter Hatton in the feature event at today's The Prince of Wales Hospital Ride for Life at Sydney's Centennial Park.
Hatton, 22, swiped victory (and the prize: a classy set of Shimano wheels) from Randwick Botany rider Shaun Higgerson and Macarthur Collegians' Luis Trueba in the 72.5km/25 lap Shimano Open following a seven-man sprint conducted with the same riders he had been companionably swapping turns with since they broke away from the main peloton on the sixth lap.
"That was a great race," he told Cyclingnewsafterwards. "I consider myself more of a mountain biker, so I liked the hills on the course and the conditions were perfect. It was a bit cool to start with, but there wasn't much wind and it was sunny. What more could you want?"
The current state MTB champion, who has competed at world level, wasn't taking all the credit, however: he paid tribute to his fellow riders, saying it was a team effort. "Everyone was working well together to extend and then secure the gap to the main bunch, a minute or so behind by the finish," he said.
Commencing their 25-lap journey at a moderate pace, the field of more than 80 stayed together for just two laps before a small attack group formed, but nobody was successful in getting away until just after the start of the fifth lap, when Clarence Street rider Klayten Smith attacked and an early breakaway group of four formed.
Hatton came across a lap later and by the eighth lap, a group comprising Joe Mcdonnell (Sutherland), Shaun Higgerson (Randwick Botany), Peter MacDonald (Colnago-Caravello), Klayten Smith (Clarence Street), Luis Trueba (Macarthur Collegians), Peter Hatton (Clarence Street) and Brendan Fehon (St George) was setting a sizzling pace and had a third of a lap on the chasing bunch.
By the start of the 13th lap the breakaway had a minute on a hard-working chasing attack by Parramatta rider Brent Skippen, Peloton Sports' Brad McCreadie and Peter Galvin and Clarence Street's Glenn Stojanow. That group picked up 20 seconds on the main peloton of 28 riders but was unable to stay away for long.
Trueba attacked before the final hill on the final lap and Hatton, considering him "strong but not the kind of guy to sprint", went with him - and then around him - to cross the finish line first - and alone.
Hatton's win in the main event was just one of many highlights of the annual day of cycling action, held to support the oncology department of the Prince of Wales Hospital. While the serious senior riders turned out in force to contest the Shimano Open, Under 19, Women's and Masters events, a swag of up and coming under 17, under 15 and under 13 junior girls and boys contested NSW road champion series. The Allens Arthur Robinson Corporate Challenge attracted 150 team riders on everything from road bikes to mountain and touring bikes, while a number of families turned out for a fun ride on a much flatter course than the challenging uphill 2.89 kilometre circuit selected for the main events.
Also exciting for the modest crowd of spectators turning out on the day was the Shimano Masters event of 35km, won by Sydney rider Liam Kelly ahead of elite racing veteran Eddie Salas and Charles Topfer (Lidcombe Auburn). Kelly, who had led the race since the second last lap, paid tribute to the race organizers for a "fantastic event" and said there should be more like the Ride for Life.
Salas also said he had had a good race, although he was disappointed it had been shortened by a few laps due to a late start. "The racing was very good. Liam made a move with five to go and then with three to go I thought that must be time to attack, so I jumped but was caught, so it came down to a bunch sprint. Liam came past me and I got on his wheel and that's how we finished."
Racing a shorter event when he's used to contesting elite races was refreshing, he said. "I have recently decided to slow things down because I have a three year old at home and my wife is expecting our second child plus I have a business and will be 40 in a couple of weeks. Now instead of doing 180km races I am changing to 30km races and aim to just enjoy it. So far, I am!"
The racing fields also included some ex-Olympians and Olympians, including track rider Ben Kersten, who has been putting in some road kilometres to supplement his track pursuit training, while VIPS attending on the day included Olympic gold, triple world champion and Commonwealth champion Stephen Wooldridge, recovering at home in Australia after a serious race fall in France resulted in a premature end to his season with his German team, Team ComNet-Senges.
Wooldridge told Cyclingnews he was looking forward to getting back on the bike again after taking eight weeks off following his crash in the Boucles de la Mayenne in France, which led to a broken jaw in three places, a fractured finger and wrist.
"It was the second day of the race and the team was going okay until I crashed and the director had to pay me attention rather than the other riders," he said. He wasn't a pretty sight. The broken jaw required surgery to insert three titanium plates and he had to have his jaw wired shut for four weeks, which played havoc with his nutrition.
"I lost seven kilograms in the first week," he said. "Soup was my best friend for a while, but it knocks your body around a lot, especially when you're an athlete used to eating well."
He came back to Australia to recover and has been back on his bike and in the gym, working hard to regain some strength and focus on the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne and then defend the world teams pursuit three weeks later. "I'm getting bored not doing much," he said, "but at least I have been doing some study to fill in the time." He's working on a post graduate finance degree.
Also on hand was injured rider Kate Nicholls, her right arm still in a splint after the riding accident which killed one and injured five of her Australian team mates in Germany last month, but in good spirits. Accompanied by her ex-Olympian father Kevin, she flagged off the Masters and Corporate fields.
"I am feeling good," she told Cyclingnews. "My hand is healing really well. It's only a matter of time."
Nichols partially cut the tendons to her second and third fingers on her right hand and received "a lot" of glass cuts all over her body in the accident which occurred with a young driver lost control of her car and struck the Australian team as it was going over the course for the Tour of Germany the following day. The first of the team to be released from hospital and sent home, Nichols is undergoing extensive hand therapy and physiotherapy and continuing her advanced science/biochemistry degree at Wollongong university with help from a scribe (to write for her), her mum (to drive her), a friend (who helps with her practical sessions) and her dad (who she says provides moral support and has once helped her with her ponytail!)
She expects to have the splint removed from her hand in two weeks and hopes to be back on the bike in the next few months. "I really want to get back into racing, but obviously I can't until the hand heals," she said.
Meanwhile, Cycling Australia showed its support of safe cycling by donating half the proceeds from race entries, additional sponsorship gained plus donations to the Amy Gillett-Safe Cycling Foundation, set up following the Germany tragedy.
