No Pain No Gain

Dunedin ironman Olympian Greg Henderson, 32, won stage two of the Jayco Bay Classic Criterium in Geelong. And when Henderson admits to hurting, you know he’s had a tough day. “The legs are absolutely screaming at me,” a jubilant Henderson said after the win. “The pace was a cracker from the opening lap. The speed of the attacks and counter-attacks was just unbelievable. The field raced at full gas throughout. After two days here, I now know why the Jayco crits produce the quickest closed-circuit racing anywhere in the world.” Henderson showed just why the new Rupert Murdoch-backed Team Sky paid big money for his services with a dazzling display of sprinting around a tight and technical Eastern Park circuit on the foreshores of Corio Bay. In 2009 he won the Clasica de Almerma in Spain and the second stage of Vuelta Ciclista a Murcia.
