Jayco Herald Sun Tour
Stage 3: Traralgon to Inverloch - Stage Details

With one stage left to go in the Jayco Herald Sun Tour, Stage 2 winner Caleb Ewan finished the day in sixth place after a well fought downhill finish into Inverloch. United Health Care's John Murphy took the stage honours in tight photo finish.

Sport director Matt Wilson was pleased with the team's performance working to set up Ewan in the finale.

"It was a really good effort by the boys again today. Christian Meier did an amazing job on the front along with Sam Bewley to bring the breakaway back in the final.  It ended up being a really messy finish."

He went on to add  "I'm sure Caleb (Ewan) will be a little bit disappointed but we did all we could and there is still one day left to go."
