Santos Tour Down Under: Ulissi powers home ahead of Gerrans and Evans, jumps to second overall

GC contenders continue to show their hands early on

Diego UlissiSurprising race contenders Simon Gerrans (Orica GreenEdge) and Cadel Evans (BMC Racing Team) with a perfectly timed burst on the far right side of the road, Diego Ulissi won the uphill sprint to the line in Stirling at the end of stage two of the Santos Tour Down Under.

The Italian Lampre-Merida rider thundered in ahead of Gerrans, Evans, Francesco Gavazzi (Astana), Robert Gesink (Belkin), Richie Porte (Team Sky) and the other riders in the 97 man front group, notching up his first win since the Giro dell'Emilia last October.

“I’ve never believed in my chances to win this stage because I had the impression that Simon Gerrans was by far the strongest,” said the 24 year old after the 150 kilometre stage from Prospect. “I thought he’d be unbeatable but I managed to beat him thanks to the help of the great team I have behind me.

“This has a lot to do with the serenity I found by winning a few races at the very end of last season, therefore I could train for this one with no worries and prepare well for Milan-San Remo.”

Gerrans took stage one and was aiming to further bolster his lead today. He did over all the riders bar Ulissi, who took a ten second bonus for the win and moved up to second overall. Gerrans also got a bonus for second place and is now seven seconds ahead of the Italian, while yesterday’s runner-up Andre Greipel (Lotto-Belisol) is now eleven seconds back in third.

Evans, who is aiming to win the overall classification for the first time, improves to fourth but has a thirteen second deficit to make up on Gerrans.

“I would have loved to win the stage again today,” said the latter, who was wearing the distinctive ochre jersey of race leader. “It was close but I can’t win them all.

“It didn’t surprise me to be sprinting against Diego Ulissi in such a finale like Stirling. He’s a classy rider. But I wasn’t expecting he’d pass me as fast as he did. He’s obviously a threat for the overall classification but it’s a good result for me today as I have a bigger advantage over my other rivals with the time bonus of the second place.

“My position on GC is just as good as I could have hoped for. Tomorrow is going to be the most decisive stage with the Corkscrew climb so close to the finish.”

The stage saw the riders race from Prospect to Stirling, where the riders would then begin two twenty kilometre laps of a tough finishing circuit.

Almost immediately after the drop of the flag Will Clarke (Drapac Pro Cycling) attacked with UniSA-Australia's Campbell Flakemore and Boy Van Poppel of Trek Factory Racing. Clarke had been in yesterday’s two man break and earned the most aggressive ride award for his efforts; he was vying to do so again – and would be successful in that goal - but was also trying to repeat his stage win in Stirling of two years ago.

Van Poppel beat Flakemore and Clarke to take the intermediate sprint at One Tree Hill (km 25.8), then Clarke proved too strong for Flakemore at the King of the Mountains climbs at Golden Grove (km 34.8) and Checker Hill (km 56.3).

He was hunting for the King of the Mountains jersey but the wearer of that, Adam Hansen (Lotto-Belisol) picked up the points for fourth place on each of the climbs. While he ended the day locked on points with Clarke, he was confirmed as retaining his white and green jersey.

“I’ve seen the possibility to take two points for the KOM without spending much energy as the fourth place atop the hill was still up for grabs,” he stated.

Clarke took the final intermediate sprint at Balhannah (km 86.4), but the efforts of the break to stay clear were looking doomed. Flakemore cracked with thirty kilometres to go, then Clarke and Van Poppel were caught as they went through Stirling for the second time.

Once on the final lap of the twenty kilometre circuit, Greipel had to stop due to a front wheel puncture. He got a quick wheelchange but the effort of chasing back on would cost him any chance he had of taking the stage win.

Instead, it was Ulissi who thundered home first, timing his move at the right time and having the strength to blast home comfortably ahead.

“This is my first time in Australia and I’m amazed by the incredible affection of the fans,” said the former Giro d’Italia stage winner. “The environment of this race is wonderful.”

Gerrans would have liked to have won the stage, but was accepting of the result. Ditto for Evans, although he knew that he has to start getting time back on Gerrans if he is able to win overall.

“I went too early, and got swamped at the finish,” he said. “I hope to get it right in the next few days. I didn't have the legs and timing to do it today. I’m going OK. I just need a bit of timing. It's still pretty open on GC.”

The Santos Tour Down Under continues tomorrow with a 145 kilometre race from Norwood and over Corkscrew Hill to the finish in Campbelltown.
