Mars Cycling Australia Road Championships
Road Race - Men - Stage Details

Luke Durbridge stormed to victory in the elite men’s road race at the Mars Cycling Australia National Road Championships. The West Australian put himself in the early break and slowly but steadily rid himself of his breakmates to cross the finish line alone. Durbridge’s double affords him a unique place in cycling history. He is the first Australian male professional to take titles in both the time trial and road race in the same year.

 “It’s all good to take the glory at the front of the race, but it doesn’t happen without a true team effort.” - Luke Durbridge
