Tour Down Under: Number 3 for Greipel who gallops to victory

The Santos Tour Down Under thundered into Victor Harbor today with German sprint sensation Andre Greipel leading home a bunch gallop to win the third stage and reclaim the overall lead.

The Lotto-Belisol rider, who won both the curtain raiser Down Under Classic race on Sunday night and the first stage of the Tour into Clare on Tuesday, was just too fast for his rivals edging out FDJ – BigMat rider Yauheni Hutarovich (BLR) by half a wheel with Norwegian Evald Boasson Hagen (Sky) third across the line.

“This victory is for Jurgen Roelandts who unfortunately supports us from the hospital,” said Greipel of his team mate who was injured in the crash at the end of the stage into Clare. “We’re nearly three riders down but the rest of the team that is not injured has been awesome today.

The win puts Greipel back into the ochre leader’s jersey with an eight second margin over Swiss rider Martin Kohler (BMC). Australian Michael Matthews (Rabobank) finished with the bunch and remains in third place overall at 12 seconds.

“I’m happy to get back into the lead but the time bonus (10 seconds for the stage win) I got again isn’t important in my mind,” said Greipel who has twice won overall honours but concedes he is unlikely to win a third. ” The Willunga stage (Saturday) is too hard for me to win GC this year. With two stage wins, we’ve already reached our goal. We can’t have everything and we just take it day by day.”

The stage today departed from the cosmopolitan shopping hub of Unley for a 134.5km route that took in the breath taking countryside of both the McLaren Vale and the picturesque coastal scenes of the Fleurieu Peninsula.

A group of three went down the road in the first five kilometres made up of Russian Eduard Vorganov (Katusha) and Belgians Jan Bakelants (RadioShack-Nissan-Trek) and Thomas De Gendt (Vaconsoleil-DCM). They were soon joined by Ireland’s Matthew Brammeier (Omega Pharma – Quickstep).

De Gendt was the only rider in the quartet already on the board in the SKODA King of the Mountain competition so, not surprisingly, he hit out up Sellicks Hill Category 2 climb to claim the maximum ten points ahead of Brammeier, Bakelants and Vorganov. That puts De Gendt in the polka dot jersey with a two point lead over yesterday’s stage winner Tasmanian Will Clarke (UniSA-Australia).

The break stretched to a lead of around five minutes but the peloton, after failing to catch Clarke yesterday, judged today’s chase to perfection.

The two Jayco intermediate sprints were hotly contested by the top three placed riders with a maximum of six bonus seconds up for grabs and all within 12 seconds of the race lead. De Gendt proved the swiftest of the trio battling for the points and won the dash for the line at both Mt Compass (65km) and Goolwa (89.4km). By then the margin had shrunk to less than two minutes.

“Three of the four riders (in the break) had the same goal and that was to take the second sprint and then after that we just wanted to go back to the peloton,” said De Gendt.

After the sprint at Goolwa Brammeier tried a solo attack off the front as the peloton reeled in his there fellow escapees and although he held on for a few more kilometres it wasn’t too be his day for victory. Ten kilometres from home the pace was frenetic as the sprinter’s jostled for position.

“It was our intention to keep the breakaway in sight with a good gap. The crosswinds have made the race faster. The one kilometre to go mark was the most important point of today’s stage,” said Greipel. “I told my team-mates ‘I need to be in fifth or sixth position at that point’.They did a great job to put me there and I finished it off.”

De Gendt’s efforts along the road moved him up to fourth overall, 14 seconds off Greipel’s lead.

“The legs are not so good but I will try to attack. I think tomorrow is the best for me just to stay in the peloton and then Old Willunga Hill is going to be so hard but I am going to try and be in the front.”

Matthews still leads the Cycle Intead Best Young Rider under 26 classification but was a little disapointed with today’s finish.

“The boys had a really good lead out for me and I just couldn’t really hold the wheel in the last couple of kilometres,” said Matthews. “It just got a bit messy and Mark Renshaw [Rabobank team mate] held the lead out but I just wasn’t there to finish it.”

Tomorrow’s BUPA Stage 4 travels 130km from Norwood in Adelaide’s eastern suburb’s to Tanunda in the Barossa wine growing region. Stage 4 also hosts the Bupa Challenge Tour with more than seven thousand cycling enthusiasts hopping on their bikes to ride the race route. Joining them on the family friendly Tanunda loop will be cycling legend, Eddy Merckx.

Evald Boasson Hagen told SBS TV in AUstralia “I was a bit boxed in in the last couple of hundred metres so it was hard to get through. A Rabobank guy came on the left side, forced me out into the wind and after that it was too hard to pass,” said the Norwegian. “And when I got to the finish I realised I had a puncture, so that didn’t help.”

Speaking on Team Sky’s website, Gary Suttons son, Chris Sutton, explained “It was pretty hectic coming into those last few corners but the boys had it all dialled with Danny Pate and Alex Dowsett. Then Mick was up there doing a really good job before Hayman took over and did a big turn. G came out of the corner and dropped me off nicely. The final corner was perfect but I was just waiting for Edvald to come around. [Mark] Renshaw came around on the left which took me way across to the right. I just kept looking to see where Eddy was.

“Maybe he got caught up in a bit of the carnage behind but when we got back to the cars his tyre was half flat. We managed to get some good bonus seconds to help put him up there on GC. It was pretty good stage for me today. I didn’t really have much to do I just protected Edvald there at the end and really just looked after him today.”

Director sportif Sean Yates added “It was a tight sprint. Edvald got third which is a good result against Greipel and those guys. The boys were up for it and also ready during the stage for something going down. We know it’s going to be played out in seconds at the end of this race so the fact that Eddy picked up four today is good for the overall GC. He’s one of our top guys and four seconds could be the difference between fifth and tenth which is obviously quite a few points in the WorldTour rankings.

“It’s quite a frustrating race in that we are ready physically and we are good as a unit. But the racing is not hard enough at this point in the year to be able to really be effective when you execute something. Then obviously when it comes to a sprint guys like Greipel are very hard to beat. But running third today is no mean feat.”

Radioshack-Nissan-Trek reactions – Jan Bakelants, who spent the stage in the four man break, explained on the Radioshack-Nissan-Trek website the team’s strategy “This morning José and Lars told me to go in the break today to get some bonification seconds, which can be a big advantage in this stage race.  I was able to take four seconds on the road.  I was in the break with Thomas De Gendt (Vacansoleil) and I knew with a guy like him there was a chance to go to the finish but we knew it would be difficult. Behind us in the peloton, they were kicking up the pace because of the crosswinds,” said Bakelants. “That’s when we knew we couldn’t stay away until the end.”

The Radioshack-Nissan-Trek’s sprinter Daniele Bennati also got stuck in when he had a go in the sprint . “I started the sprint in a perfect position in the wheel of (Mark) Renshaw, behind 3 riders of the Sky team,” said Bennati after the stage. “At about 800m from the finish, in a right hand corner I got passed by some riders taking a lot of risks, including Robbie McEwen. His back wheel slipped away which made me brake through the corner and caused me to lose my good starting position.”

“Okay, the win was not there, but most important is that I felt strong today. I know some guys, like Greipel are too fast for me at this time of year. However, doing these sprints is important for me so I can get the feeling for the upcoming sprints in the longer and harder races, further along in the season. Those sprints will fit me better.”

Rabobank – all was not well in the Rabobank camp however with Mark Renshaw sprinting for the win and finishing fourth, while teammate Michael Matthews was 12th. Speaking to the Sydney Morning Herald, Graeme Brown was asked if he was angry because the team had not win, Brown curtly replied “yes”. Renshaw added “if Michael had been on my wheel, he would have won by 10 lengths”.  Matthews meanwhile explained “as you could probably see, over the finish line I was not happy at all. There was not much I could do about it and I just didn’t ride good position today.”
