Border cyclist Jesse Featonby has continued his impressive form to claim the King of the Mountain standings at the Tour of Mansfield on the weekend.

Featonby’s Drapac Pat’s Veg team also won the overall teams classification, while teammate Nicholas Katsonis took out the general classification by 34 seconds in a time of 4:01.23.

“It was a great weekend for the team because we won everything,” he said.

“Because we had a strong team, we could play all the tactics into our hands.

“The last day had a hilltop finish up Mount Buller and we were able to put four guys in a breakaway to hold on for the overall victory.”

The event was perfect preparation for the team’s next major race at the week-long Tour of Thailand.

Featonby flies out next Thursday and knows it will be a huge challenge in tough conditions.

“The first two days are 200 kilometres and I’ve never raced that far, so it’s going to be a massive shock,” he said.
