Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race - Men - Race Overview

Santos Tour Down Under winner Simon Gerrans placed fifth today in the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race. Peter Kennaugh (Team Sky) held off a reduced peloton to take the win in Geelong after a tough race. 

Sport director Matt Wilson was pleased with the way the team rode today.

“I think the guys rode really well, everyone rode really to plan and did a great job, its just that Kennaugh was too strong in the end so hats off to him.”

A nervous bunch saw Mitch Docker take a fall early on, as the peloton wriggled around the road with teams frantically working to set up the first break of the day. Later in the race Caleb Ewan also took a tumble but was able to rejoin his team mates in the peloton.
