Jayco-Herald Sun Tour gallery – stage 1
After the TT in Melbourne comes the opening road stage. The peloton of the Jayco-Herald Sun Tour left Colac this morning and arrived in Warrnambool this afternoon. Lasse Norman Hansen won.
The pictures tell some of the story and the sequence provided by Jean-Pierre Ronco for this gallery illustrates the mood of the race beautifully. Scroll down and watch as the peloton makes its way from Colac to Warrnambool…
A break forms. The bunch chases with the yellow jersey, Ed Clancy, close to the front of the pack… but, ultimately, unable to defend his GC lead.
The stage winner, Lasse Norman Hansen – one of the riders who went on the attack last Sunday in the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race – inherited the lead from Clancy.
