Australia's Matt Goss, 22, took victory in the opening day of the 57th Jayco Herald Sun Tour. The Team CSC-Saxo Bank rider finished the 44-kilometre day ahead of Baden Cooke of Team Barloworld and Hilton Clarke of Team Toyota-United.

Goss acknowledged teammate Stuart O'Grady's work in the finale. "Stu did the hard part and I got to do the easy part. Having a guy like that in front gives you a lot of confidence," Goss said in a press release.

Goss jumped while Cooke and Clarke marked each other in the last 150 metres. He claimed the first race leader's yellow jersey with the win.

Cooke's day could have turned out a lot worse than the podium spot he secured. He crashed less than halfway through the race.

"I might have to see a chiropractor tonight because I gave myself a bit of whack," Cooke said.

A breakaway group of four dominated the early part of the day. Matt Wilson, Daryl Impey, Peter McDonald and Eric Wolhberg formed the move, but Toyota-United kept watch. The group caught the escape at three laps to go. (GB)
