Stage 3 - January 29: Sterling Valley, 14km

Taberlay down but not out…yet?

By Joe Ward

Defending champion Sid Taberlay was looking to regain the time he lost yesterday and was absolutely on the rivet all day, winning today’s first stage by a minute but throwing himself on the ground at 60km/h in the second stage, sustaining a deep gouge to his knee, multiple lacerations and converting his helmet to very secondhand condition.

Sunday's first stage from Tullah to Rosebery (13km) had a perfect “A” shape elevation profile making it a stage for the climbers. The ascent up Mt Murchison, despite the recent dry weather, remained very slippery with clay and composting leaf litter all the way. The leaders would have found the fresh track reasonably challenging while mid-packer’s such as yours truly, had an experience more akin to cyclocross racing with frequent mud puddles and chopped up double track to trudge though.

Sid Taberlay (TAS - Avanti) topped the climb first and proceeded to put his considerable descending skills to good use on the loose rocky downhill, arriving at the line a minute ahead of tour leader Chris Jongewaard (SA – Avanti) and Aiden Lefman (NSW – Cannondale/Maxxis).
