Gerrans claims record fourth TDU

Sunday, 24 January 2016

VIS associate scholarship holder Simon Gerrans has won the 2016 Tour Down Under in Adelaide for a record fourth time.

Teammate Caleb Ewans took the final stage of the TDU in a sprint finish, giving Orica GreenEdge, an impressive four-stage haul during the tour.

Gerrans had a final time of 19 hours, 11 minutes and 33 seconds, which was nine seconds ahead of runner up Richie Porte. Gerrans was also awarded the tour's Sprint Classification.

Another VIS rider, teenager Lucas Hamilton, turned heads when he rode away from the lead group on Saturday showing that the 19 year old from Ararat can already compete against some of the best riders in the world.
