Team HTC-Highroad riders Matthew Goss and Judith Arndt have won their respective races at the 2011 Jayco Bay Classic in Geelong, Australia. The win for Goss was his second this week and even earned him the overall title of the four day event.
In the women's race Arndt took the lead around the last corner and was able to hold off the sprinters to the finish.
"I think Rochelle [Gilmore] got a bit confused about whether Im going to lead out Chloe or go for myself," Arndt explained after the finish.
Arndt added "I had Chloe on my wheel when I went past their train on the back straight, and this is also how we came around the last corner. The distance to the finish was too short for anyone to come past me."
Arndt's HTC-Highroad teammate Chloe Hosking took third place and Rochelle Gilmore took second place and the overall win.
In the men's race Goss's teammates reeled in a strong break so that he could sprint to his second win in four days.
"I'm really happy to have hit the ground running in 2011," Matthew Goss commented and added "It's great for the confidence coming into the nationals and the 2011 Tour Down Under. I have tried to be better prepared and in better condition this time of year [compared to last year] and today has shown a good sign of that. I'm looking forward to a big season head."
