Murray Lawson stage win and 2nd overall at Up The Glax stage race

It was a great start to the season for young Murray Lawson of Spokes Race Team this month with a win on Stage 2 and second in General Classification at the Up The Glax stage race, confirming the hard work put on over the past months is already paying off.

Murray has trained hard over the winter aiming to improve his sprint finish. He has also been working hard off the bike too, following a structured strength and conditioning programme aimed at eliminating imbalances on has left and right side, making him a stronger rider all round.

Following a 6th place on the opening stage prologue, Stage 2 saw Murray’s first win of the season after he got into the early break of six which stayed away after being joined by a further group of five. On the last climb it was back down to just six riders again due to the aggressive pace and from there Murray was then able to out sprint his breakaway companions to take the win!
