Evans takes Subaru National Road Series lead

by CyclingTips

New Zealand’s Brad Evans (Drapac-Pat’s Veg) has taken the lead in the Subaru National Road Series with his win at the the 500km five-day Port of Portland-Fulton Hogan Tour of the Great South Coast.

Evans won the race by 16 seconds ahead of Queensland’s Ryan Thomas (21), with one second back to Victorian Liam White who pipped NSW’s Jesse Coyle on rankings after riding the same time.

The Subaru National Road Series returned to the roads in July with the second event for men. Evans’ team mate Mathew Ross retains his hold on the NRS17 Young Rider’s jersey.

Sprinter Scott Sunderland won his fourth stage of the six stage event, leading home teammates Anthony Giacoppo and Chris Harper in a trifecta for the Isowhey Sports SwissWellness team.

The series continues in August with the Sam Miranda Tour of the King Valley.
