Santos Tour Down Under
Jayco Stage 5: McLaren Vale - Old Willunga Hill - Stage Details

Simon Gerrans delivered an Australian win on Australia day in Willunga. The Tour Down Under defending champion narrowly edged out Tom-Jelte Slagter (Blanco) in the uphill sprint to secure the first WorldTour win of the year for ORICA-GreenEDGE.

“I was pretty disappointed to drop of out contention for the overall on stage two. I had one chance to make up for it, and that was today. To win here on Australia Day was a fantastic feeling. A big thanks to my ORICA-GreenEDGE teammates. They laid it on the line for me today, so it was great to finish it off." - Simon Gerrans

“I’m just so happy after all the disappointment we’ve had here this week. We came in with such good form and have had some unlucky moments. To win like this makes even more sweet than if we had no problems at all.  The boys gave it their all every day. The win today is a their just reward.” - Sport Director Matt Wilson
