Jayco Herald Sun Tour
Stage 1: Healesville to Healesville - Stage Details

ORICA-GreenEDGE completed the day with a fifth place finish from Victoria's Jack Haig. Peter Kennaugh (SKY) took the victory ahead of team mate Chris Froome (SKY) as the duo escaped on the final climb of the day.

"It was a stage that we really needed to win to be in better contention to win the tour," said sport director Matt Wilson. "The guys really gave it a shot, Damien Howson was in a great move and could have stayed away. Unfortunately he got caught with less than 500m to go."

Wilson continued with a positive outlook for the coming days.

"Tomorrow's another day, we'll see what happens there's still plenty more opportunities and I think on Sunday anything can happen then."
