Primera Purbeck 2 Day, Jarisch Takes Stage 1


Colton Jarisch (Felt-Colborne-Hargroves RT) won the opening 50 mile stage of the Primera Purbeck 2 day, winning an exciting uphill finish above Lulworth Cove in Dorset. Jarisch had animated the race, escaping on the third lap with Tony Kiss (Dynamic Bicycles UK/RPC). The pair got away across Bovington Heath and built a lead of 40 seconds and with the Felt-Colborne team controlling the bunch the move looked good. However the gap was down to 23 seconds at the bell and the remains of the peloton were altogether the final time through East Lulworth.The headwind descent making it difficult for the duo to stay clear. Robert Ward, John Heaton-Armstrong & Chris Spence drilled it across the heath for Jarisch and although the finale was tight the 26 year old Texan deserved the win. Unattached Hugh Knudsen grabbed second ahead of Rob ward. Knudsen had ridden an aggresive race and will be in the mix on day two. A group of nine had gone clear after the long neutralised section, only to be reeled in before the second climb of Newtown hill. The long drag up from the village of Wool took its toll on the 80 strong field with riders being dropped from the start. Jarisch will be well supported on stage two and it seems only some brave, attacking riding can stop the Felt-Colborne boys!
Reaction.....
Jarisch
“It was tough, a pretty windy exposed course, I was away in a little two man break, we got away on the fast part of the course surprisingly, we got some time bonuses but we got caught after the descent. My team were really organised, we kept it all together. My team did it they rode perfectly.”
Ward..
"A windy circuit, the winding roads strung it out good, the attacks were going on the hill, of course, we agreed to lead Colton out, I got boxed in a way back but managed to work my way back"
