Santos Tour Down Under
Bupa Stage 4: Modbury - Tanunda - Stage Details

ORICA-GreenEDGE started the fourth stage of the Santos Tour Down Under fully committed to supporting Matt Goss in the anticipated bunch sprint in Tanunda. Unfortunately, a crash-filled finale cost Goss the opportunity to contest the finish. Goss, Daryl Impey and Jens Mouris, were three of the six riders involved in the second of two crashes inside the final ten kilometres.

“Sprinting is a dangerous game. Luckily, all of riders were able to finish the stage. Goss and Mouris will start tomorrow. Daryl needs further examination before we determine if he can safely continue. Apart from the obvious sting of missing skin, Goss is just disappointed and angry to miss out.He had been feeling good, and the guys were really motivated to get it right at the finish today.” - Sport Director Matt Wilson
