Welsford Olympic year off to a flying start with Bay Crits win

Pursuit cyclist Sam Welsford has claimed his first Bay Crits title after finishing third in the final leg of the three day criterion on a wet track in Williamstown on Sunday.

The 23-year-old won on the opening day in Geelong before backing up his performance on Sunday with a fourth place finish before his third place edged out Brenton Jones and Nick White.

Sunday’s race was dominated by Queenslander Kaden Groves and Australian road racing champion Michael Frieberg who opened up a huge lead on the rest of the field to battle out the finish with Groves taking the honours on the final day to complete his first stage win in the Bay Crits.

The win will give Welsford confidence ahead of a year that will include competing in the Tokyo Olympics in the team pursuit.
