The City Games in Newcastle were on and the Aussie Commonweatlth-bound boys mixed it up with a few decent Brits.
Mottram delivered another strong performance by besting the the competition and pushing Thompson to the line. Thompson is no doubt "feeling the bridesmaid" once again. Although, in some scenarios that feeling is sought after.
1 25 Craig Mottram AUS 8:31
2 22 Chris Thompson GBR 8:32
3 23 Andy Baddeley GBR 8:34
4 27 Ben St Lawrence AUS 8:36

With Mo opting out of the games in Delhi, and Mottram snubbed by AA, both countries will be sitting out there best hopes to medal. Congrats to Mottram on his most awesome comeback to racing and winning.
