Leading at the two-hour mark from Travis Teasdale, Jarvis steadily extended his lead as darkness fell. Maintaining his impressive pace during the final hour of the race Jarvis earned a well-deserved fifth Hell‰Ûªs Gate victory, topping the podium ahead of Teasdale and Young.
"It‰Ûªs been a great event for me," Jarvis enthused. "Winning the morning qualifying race was a bit of a surprise. I just made sure I didn't make any mistakes and that was good enough to get the win.
"In the main race I got a good start but dropped behind Wade Young, who was running a really strong pace. He had some kind of a problem then, which allowed me to get ahead. I just kept a steady pace going then and things worked out great. There was a lot more man-made sections this year, which isn't really my things. But to get a fifth Hell‰Ûªs Gate win is great.‰Û
