Mitchelton Bay Cycling Classic - Men
Williamstown Criterium - Stage Details

Mitch Docker took his first win in ORICA-GreenEDGE colours on the third stage of the Mitchelton Bay Cycling Classic. Besting Harry Carpenter (Team SASI) in a two-up sprint, Docker’s win in Williamstown capped off a hugely successful race series for the Australian outfit.

"We won two stages, the sprint classification and the team classification. Four of our five riders were in the top ten overall with Docker our best placed in third. It was a fantastic three days of racing for the team. We couldn’t hope for much more. The guys have shown they’re in good condition.” - Sport Director Matt Wilson

Carpenter attacked with a lap and half to go. He attacked me from behind, so as soon as I got on his wheel, I stayed on it. I made him lead the sprint, and then I shot underneath him in the final corner. I made sure I was first one through that last corner. It’s maybe 250 metres from the line, and I sprinted from there.” -Mitch Docker
