Tour de France
Stage 5: Arras Communaute Urbaine to Amiens Metropole - Stage Details

For the second consecutive day, Michael Matthews has pushed through pain barriers to complete stage five of the Tour de France despite a rib injury caused in the nasty crash on stage three.

His resilience was rewarded with the most combative rider award for the stage, but it was nothing on that shown by the ANZACs who ORICA-GreenEDGE rode in memory of today.

Today’s route followed one similar to the Western Front in World War I.  In honour of the 295,000 who fought and 46,000 who sacrificed in the area, ORICA-GreenEDGE wore a black armband with the Australian Centenary logo.

“Today was definitely a special day for our team,” sport director Matt White said. “It’s an honour for us to be able to make a tribute to those who sacrificed for our future.”
