Jayco Herald Sun Tour - Race Overview

On the final day of the Jayco Herald Sun Tour, 23-year-old Damien Howson had the ride of his life to finish second place on the stage, subsequently moving him up into third overall in the general classification. 

ORICA-GreenEDGE headed into the day with it all to play for, rounding up their Australian summer campaign in fine style finishing third (Howson) and fifth (Jack Haig) overall.
