Santos Tour Down Under
Stage 3: Glenelg to Campbelltown - Stage Details

Simon Gerrans has taken out an exhilarating finish on stage three at the Santos Tour Down Under to move into the overall lead.

The three-time Tour winner arrived at the finish line in a small group of riders, just outsprinting Rohan Dennis (BMC Racing) in a final throw to the line.

"To come away with the stage win and the lead, we couldn't ask for much more than that," Gerrans said. "I came from a fair way back, everyone was pretty hammered after getting over the corkscrew so I’m really thrilled to win it, even by the narrowest of margins."
