Race 3 was a tough race around the infamous Innsbruckring taking in the Legs snapper in the process.

All teams were up for a race with plenty of early attacks coming from Electric Spirits Oliver Greenstein in the early stages of the race. Small but powerful groups were often off the front and getting reasonable gaps in the process, however often there was a team missing from the split and the leading groups were closed down.

On the final lap once again Greenstein was attentive to the moves and group of 6 riders moved clear of the main peloton every team had someone in the move, NZBro and NeXT had 2 riders each in the winning move. Josh Haggerty from NZBro was one of the key riders to watch in the sprint for victory and indeed when he launched his attack only a few could follow, JBruhn was chasing hard in the final few meters to the line and a photo finish was required to split the 2 top places. 

J Bruhn from NeXT had narrowly taken the overall win and indeed NeXt had managed to pack 3 riders in the top 10 meaning they also took the team victory on the night.

Next month we are off to Zwift's Neokyo Island for a 3 lap race around the Railways and rooftops course, so expect some exciting attacks on the rooftops climb as this small group racing format ensures great race action.
