Simon Gerrans takes Stage 2 of the Grand Prix Tell

Australian Simon Gerrans, 22, has claimed victory in the second stage of the five day Grand Prix Tell U/23 road cycling tour in Switzerland. The 140km stage from Huttwil to Brunnen which was ridden in rainy conditions with crashes claiming several contenders.

"The final 40 km were the wettest and were raced over some small twisty roads with some sections of cobbles," explained Australian Under 23 Road Coach, Brian Stephens. "Fortunately Simon (Gerrans) kept himself out of trouble and joined a lead group of four."

Two of the leaders came to grief on the slippery roads leaving Gerrans and Danish rider Thomas Oredson to do battle for stage honours. Gerrans victory moves him into fourth place overall, 13 seconds behind Italian race leader Fabio Borghesi but Gerrans leads the sprinters competition and the Australians hold a narrow lead in the teams' classification.

"This result comes at a good time for us as we prepare for next month's World Road Cycling Championships in Belgium," said Stephens. The Australian team to contest the World Road Cycling Championships will be announced on October 1st.
