Tour Down Un­der, Stage 5, Aus­tralia

Procycling - - Folio -

With Giro d’Italia glory his sea­son ob­jec­tive, Richie Porte served a no­tice of in­tent with an im­pres­sive vic­tory atop Old Wil­lunga Hill. The Tas­ma­nian at­tacked 2km out and rode away from his ri­vals to fin­ish alone ahead of Diego Ulissi (Lam­pre-Merida). While he took the time bonuses, the gap be­tween him and ri­vals Si­mon Ger­rans and Cadel Evans wasn’t suf­fi­cient for him to as­sume race lead­er­ship. With a sin­gle stage re­main­ing, it was Ger­rans who was in the hot seat for a third Tour Down Un­der win.
