THE PERFECT END.
There was no more perfect ending to Black Sheep | Stinner Racing's inaugural year than the Shimano Supercrit run by St Kilda CC. For a team comprised of full-time professionals and part-time dads, they have exceeded all expectations. Countless podiums in some of Australia's most iconic races, and who can forget, smashing through our epic The Man Ride. In a year that saw many of Australia's Elite races and teams struggle to meet their own self-proclaimed high expectations, the Men of Steel have been a welcome success story – proving that steel can sit shoulder to shoulder with carbon. And look better too!
For this year’s Supercrit, the Men of Steel joined forces with 2013 Herald Sun Tour winner Calvin Watson. One of Australia's brightest talents jumping on board the pain train. Well, maybe it was the other way around, but hey. The boys managed to dodge the inevitable crashes and the persistent yet futile attacks to all finish well up in the main bunch. The boys had no expectations other than to have a few digs and a few laughs. What an incredible platform to launch the truly exciting developments we have in store for Black Sheep | Stinner Racing in 2017.
