Santos Tour Down Under
Stage 6: Adelaide - Stage Details

Simon Gerrans became the first three-time winner of the Santos Tour Down Under, in front of a home crowd in Adelaide on Australia day. Gerrans went into the final stage with a lead of just one second over Cadel Evans (BMC) and ended the day with the same narrow margin. Gerrans finished on the same time as André Greipel (Lotto-Belisol), who bested Mark Renshaw (Belkin) and Andrew Fenn (Omega Pharma-Quickstep) in the stage six sprint. After a dream start to the 2014 season, in which he also won the Australian National Road Race title, Gerrans is now the number one ranked rider in the world.

“The guys did a fantastic job. They kept me right at the front and out of trouble, so it worked out beautifully. It’s a huge honour to win the Tour Down Under. For it to be on Australia Day and racing for an Australia team, it just doesn’t get much better." - Simon Gerrans
