You are 100% correct! We are only getting a a daily recap of the race which is a pity as the route this year is through some really amazing countryside with the exception of today's finishing town, Moe is a real dump! :D

Sounds like that was a very fun stage. Ewan was the massive favourite of course but I don't think anyone thought he'd win from a six man group. He had Haig there with him which must have been crucial I'd have thought given that Kennaugh launched an attack in the final km.

Sky should take GC, Points, Mountains and Teams from this race now. Probably another stage win on Sunday as well.

Yeah they really have done a good job with the route this year, the Yarra Valley is a cyclists paradise with so many cracking roads so hopefully they head back next year

A good win for Ewan's developmen,t in that he was able to get over hilly terrain, as evidenced by a breakaway group of six contesting the finish.

I think a local will take out Sundays stage but Sky do look good for the GC

I wonder what happened to Ewan...?

EDIT: he slows down taking evasive action as he nearly collides with another rider and the barriers

Bonifazio was closing fast but the UHC guy had such a big gap to start with that it would be a shame if he didn't win it.

Obviously, being biased, I'm happy for the UHC team.

Watching the stage and it's very hard to tell Trek from One Pro Cycling.

4 man break caught, Sky taking over.

Im finding it hard too, in the bright sun you cant really pick out the light blue colouring on the OnePro jerseys.

Froome not in Oz for a holiday as he goes off the front to take the 1st Arthurs Seat KoM points.
