The Zookeepers Café team, the outfit that is everybody's pick to dominate the Tour of Southland, scorched over the circuit this morning to win the team time trial by eighteen seconds from the Winton Middle Pub team led by Greg Henderson and eight times tour winner Brian Fowler.

The Zookeepers team won the stage but at a cost. The fast pace saw Julian Dean out the back after three kilometres and with five still to ride. Dean has not raced for six weeks and found the windy conditions too hard.

First Zookeepers rider across the line, Gordon McCauley donned the yellow jersey while team mate Jeremy Yates wears the under 23 leader's jersey.
