Meyer shows class in Santos Tour Down Under, netting stage and race lead

Good day for Garmin-Cervélo wrests ochre jersey from Goss

Cameron MeyerHe’s shown his class on the track with multiple rainbow jerseys, and now Cameron Meyer has propelled himself into a different tunic signifying number one by taking over at the top in the Santos Tour Down Under. With a superb display of power and form, the Garmin-Cervélo rider sprinted home ahead of Thomas De Gendt (Vacansoleil-DCM Pro Cycling Team) at the end of stage four to Strathalbyn.

He and De Gendt were part of a six man move that went clear in the first hour of racing, and managed to stave off the efforts of the bunch to reel them in before the finish. Laurens ten Dam (Rabobank) and Meyer’s team-mate Matt Wilson were also able to stay clear, drifting back in the uphill sprint to finish three and ten seconds back respectively. Overnight leader Matt Goss won the sprint for fifth place but saw his ochre jersey pass to compatriot Meyer.

The latter had started the day back in 46th overall, 21 seconds down, and was still stiff from a crash on Wednesday. “It's a little bit of a shock to pull off a stage in the Tour,” he said afterwards. “It's obviously renowned for the sprinters. It's a shock to have the jersey, but I'm thrilled.

"Today, to get the stage win was the first thing I thought about, as I missed the split by seven seconds [yesterday] and lost a little bit on GC. I thought it was going to be hard to get that back, so to get the stage victory and throw my hands in the air over the finish line was just a great feeling."

Goss had begun the stage with a two second time cushion over Andre Greipel (HTC-High Road) and four on Robbie McEwen (Team RadioShack). He fought to hold on but in finishing 24 seconds back in fifth place, he couldn’t prevent his jersey passing to Meyer.

The latter also got a time bonus for the victory and is now ten seconds ahead of Ten Dam and 12” up on yesterday’s winner. Goss has pledged to do what he can to return to the top, but must fare well on tomorrow’s climbs of Willunga Hill – where Meyer will have the advantage – and also maximise his gains in intermediate and finishing sprints between now and the race end on Sunday.

“There are sprint seconds, there's bonus seconds on the line as well tomorrow in Willunga. I will try to take some seconds there and, if need be, the last day in Adelaide,” he said afterwards, according to AAP. .

“There's still plenty of opportunities to get the bonus seconds back, but it's just a bit more stress.”

Aggressive racing ramps up pressure on HTC-Highroad:

The pressure on Goss and his team came right after the start when a stream of attacks were launched. While several groups got clear, the bunch hauled each of these early moves back before the day’s Skoda King of the Mountains prime at Checker Hill. There, Simone Ponzi (Liquigas-Cannondale) beat Ben Hermans (Team Radio Shack), Jack Bobridge (Team Garmin-Cervelo) and Simon Gerrans (Sky Procycling) to the summit.

The climb was followed by an intermediate sprint in Gumeracha, where McEwen pipped Goss and gained an important bonus.

Approximately 32 kilometres into the stage, the elastic snapped when Meyer, ten Dam, Blel Kadri (Ag2R-La Mondiale), De Gent and Rob Rujigh (both Vacansoleil) surged clear. Meyer’s team-mate Matt Wilson bridged across several kilometres later and the six riders set about trying to build as big a lead as possible.

The advantage went up to two minutes 30 and was still close to this figure when De Gendt beat Kadri and Meyer to win the intermediate sprint in Balhannah. From there just over sixty kilometres remained for the sextet, which became a group of five riders when Kadri dropped back.

Had the peloton pulled hard, the move could have been brought back then. However, as Goss’s team-mate Mark Renshaw articulated, too many looked to HTC Highroad to do the bulk of the work. “It's the same old story…we rode all day and we can't be expected to do that and to close the gap,” he said. “Some of the other teams need to have a look at themselves.

"We had one guy from Omega-Pharma and a couple of guys from RadioShack but by then it was too late. With a finish like that, everyone knew it was downhill for the last 10 km. It's a little bit disappointing because we lost the jersey.”

Meyer said that a bit of tactical play helped the riders up front; they held back a little until the last half-hour of racing, then really floored it. That caught the bunch out, as it didn’t expect the acceleration.

He said that Wilson’s riding was also factor, with the Garmin-Cervélo rider driving the group along to help build the time gap. He also did more than his share of work to ensure that Meyer had a little left for the finish. As a result, the young Australian was able to respond to a sprint-opening surge by De Gendt, coming around him inside the final 100 metres.

He is now in a race leader’s jersey for the first time as a pro, and is understandably a little nervous. However tomorrow’s tough course favours the strong riders, and so it may come down to what’s in the legs more than tactics.

“I will take confidence from the ride I did in Wilunga last year,” he said. “Hopefully I can put in a good performance and have that extra special motivation with this jersey on my shoulders.”

As for De Gendt, he had some consolation in taking over the Jayco sprint competition and also grabbing the Hindmarsh Most Aggressive Rider award for the stage.

“I am little disappointed that we didn't win, but I'm also happy that I have second place," the 24 year old Belgian said. “(But) it's very early in the season for me, so it's good that I have this good result. His goal is to keep that sprint jersey by chasing a stage win and also picking up intermediate points.

Luke Roberts (UniSA) retained his lead in the Skoda King of the Mountains contest, while Meyer’s Garmin-Cervélo squad took over in the teams’ classification.

The race has what should be its most decisive stage tomorrow, with the parcours taking the riders over Old Wilunga Hill twice.
