John Lynch goes into the Race Leaders jersey after winning stage 1 and holding the lead after the stage 2 time trial

The last stage is a one hour and 3 laps criterium on a 2.4km circuit

All together on lap 2

A lap later the attacks start

A lap later

Still more riders try to get away

And more

Finally a few riders have a gap

This break looks good but it will only stay away for three laps

Then a counter attack with four laps to go

More riders join the leaders

Now five riders out front

The leaders are well clear

200m to go - The bunch is coming back, Shane Baker (Green Helmet) has jumped across to the break

Stephen Halpin wins the stage and Shane Baker's final charge has done enough to gain the few seconds he needed to win the overall prize

Pictures from the event taken by Peter Purfield
