Council jersey for sprint winner

Ben Mather on the podium

THE unsung hero of today’s third running of the Launceston to New Norfolk Classic was Launceston bike shop proprietor Ben Mather.

The specialist mountain-biker, back home after a ninth placing in the Tour of Timor, was first over Poatina today and also collected the event’s sprint championship and king of the mountain titles along the way, courtesy of an adventurous 61km solo breakaway which petered out 20km from the finish.

As well as collecting medals and bottles of champagne for the various wins, he also received a green jersey featuring the Derwent Valley Council logo for his victory in the sprint championship.
