Liam Magennis Wins 2018 Tour of Mansfield


Liam Magennis of the Drapac EF p/b Cannondale Holistic Development team has won his maiden VRS title, claiming victory at the 2018 Tour of Mansfield last weekend.

Magennis finished the tour six seconds ahead of Inform Make’s Lionel Mawditt, also coming 2nd in the stage one time-trial, and a close 4th behind his Drapac EF teammate James Whelan, on stage three. Whelan finished the tour in 6th place, with fellow teammate Cyrus Monk in 8th.

Said Magennis of the win, “I’m really excited to take my first VRS tour win in 2018 with Drapac EF. Although climbing isn’t my strong suit, I’m happy that I was able to put in a good effort and come away with the victory with the help of my teammates”.

Drapac EF also finished the tour 1st on team’s classification, however, a clerical error from the race organiser resulted in this later being altered, subsequently rewarding Inform Make the overall team win.

Drapac EF is now focusing on the upcoming 2018 Oceania Road Championships, hoping to defend a successful 2017 campaign, where Cyrus Monk was 3rd in the U23 time-trial, and Jesse Featonby was 3rd in the Elite road race.

Liam Magennis is also hoping to defend his 2017 Oceania U23 time-trial victory, “I’m coming into Oceania’s with much better form than Nationals, so hopefully I go back-to-back with the win!”.
