Ben O'Connor: "A good day
"It was a good day. The legs were running well and the guys really surrounded me to make the best result possible. It was pretty windy and it didn't allow me to run aggressively enough to make a difference. I made a mistake in the final but I was also a little bit stuck, which may have prevented me from getting an even better result. I'm a bit disappointed on one hand but I'm also very ready for the time trial tomorrow. I'll have to stay focused and calm and take advantage of my good form to achieve the best possible time."[/su_quote]
On the eve of the final counter-climb, Ben O'Connor is also in fourth place overall, 25 seconds behind leader Rohan Dennis.
