Sauer beaten by Davis
BUNDABERG cyclist Neil Sauer was pipped at the post by international star Allan Davis in another classic criterion at Charlie Triggs Crescent on Saturday.
The veteran rider led the way going into the 20th and final lap, before the Tour Down Under champion showed his class with a surging sprint to the finish.
“It was another very exciting handicap race,” Bernie Kemps, from Coral Isle Cyclists, said.
“The cyclists were all together going into the final lap.”
Davis’ latest win might be his last in Bundaberg in the foreseeable future.
Tour commitments and training for the upcoming European season will mean the former Quick Step racer will be away from Bundaberg.
Davis has been at home over the Christmas break waiting on a new deal with an international cycling team for the upcoming season.
Over the Christmas period cyclists have had a chance to race against Davis, his brother Scott and fellow international Aaron Kemps.
“It’s been a real treat for us,” Kemps said.
