It was a week of mixed fortunes in China for Cameron Bayly. He took his first UCI-classified victory on stage 3 of the Tour of Taihu Lake and sp

 

 

Crashed on the penultimate stage:

Unfortunate to have a tumble 10km to go today, but a big thanks goes to my team mates for giving me a bike and getting me back to the bunch!

THEN ON LAST STAGE:

Not the way I wanted to end the #touroftaihulake with a crash on the last day that lost the jersey. But I still came away with a stage win and held the leaders jersey for 4 days. All in all still a great week with @atgcycling boys. Now a few days recovery before 2 more tours in China before heading home to focus on the Australian summer of racing.

First of all I would like to thank everyone who sent me a message and supported me today and throughout the week, it’s been an overwhelming experience to see how much support I have! Greatly appreciated.
Well today didn’t end up as planned. I followed every move I needed to, kept myself in the perfect position to defend the overall jersey, but unfortunately over shot a corner on the descent and ended up in a tree. Thankfully just cuts and bruises but unfortunately I lost too much time and lost the overall jersey because of it.
I’m completely devastated, but I know it’s only just the start. I’ve learnt a lot this tour and will be far better prepared for races to come.
I would like to give a big thanks to all my Attaque Team Gusto Cycling team mates, who sacrificed their own ambitions all week to work tirelessly for me and did a more than fantastic job.
Big thanks to Tomaž Poljanec and staff, for tirelessly working behind the scenes for us and doing their absolute best to help us.
Also a big thanks to Mark Fenner and FTP Training, I’ve been working with Mark for a while now and have come a long way with him.
As my best mate always says, Onwards and Upwards!
Thanks all!
