Stage Two of the 15th Tour Down Under from Mt Barker to Rostrevor was a real game changer for the race.
The shortest stage in the history of the Tour Down Under saw a breakaway early on from Will Clarke (ARG), Calvin Watson (UNISA), Chris Juul Jensen (TST) and Guillaume Bonnafond (AG2R).
Clarke took out both the first and second intermediate sprits, before the breakaway was swallowed up by a charging peloton readying their key riders for the challenge of Corkscrew Road. Geraint Thomas (Sky) broke away from the peloton and charge up the Corkscrew with Javier Moreno (MOV), Ben Hermans (RSH) and Tom-Jelte Slagter (BLA) chasing hard. Thomas maintained his gap to claim King of the Mountain honours for the stage.
On the decent into Rostrevor there was an horrific pile up, with between 40 and 50 riders crashing into one another on a tight corner at speeds between 60 and 65km/h. There were plenty of graze’s and a few broken bones, with possibly three hospitalisations from the accident.
This threw the field and has destroyed the chances of many of the hot favorites who were in the middle of the peloton. This will seriously change the attitude of racing for some teams, as their key riders are well and truly out of General Classification contention, up to 2 and a half minutes down.
If you’ve not heard of local group SuperCaine, it’s probably because they are about as fresh as a band can get. Whilst the project has only been up and running for a couple of months, they are in the finishing stages of recording and already looking towards a launch. The whirlwind group of established Adelaide musicians dropped in for a chat with Seb and Sophie, giving us a sneak peak of what to expect from the lads in the coming months.
