Tasmanian Wesley Sulzberger won the morning's 36 km criterium in Ouyen by beating Chris Jongewaard, David Kemp and race leader Robert McLachlan in a four man sprint. But McLachlan, who dropped his chain in the wind up to the line, couldn't prevent Kemp from taking the yellow jersey.

How it unfolded

A well planned break by four class riders turned the 36 km Ouyen Criterium into an exciting chess match. Overnight tour leader Robert McLachlan was part of a breakaway quartet, which escaped to a 20-plus second lead, but his biggest danger – David Kemp (Qld) was also there.

McLachlan, Kemp, Tasmanian Wesley Sulzberger and South Australian Chris Jongewaard were away for two thirds (20 laps) of the bike race, but what was happening within the group was intriguing. McLachlan started the day six seconds ahead of Kemp, who had held the leader's yellow jersey from stages 2 to 4, but relinquished it in Thursday's criterium at Euston over the NSW border.

McLachlan had admitted on Thursday he had moved into yellow a little earlier than expected, but he still rode as though he was concentrating on keeping it at Ouyen. Kemp was just as determined and his tremendous ride saw him take over the lead in the Road Safe Mildura Sprint Championship as well as ousting McLachlan from the overall lead.

Sulzberger claimed his first victory of the tour, with a perfectly timed sprint in the long home straight, while Jongewaard beat Kemp home for second.

McLachlan's hopes of a sixth consecutive podium placing were dashed when his chain dropped in the final straight, but he did not appear overly disappointed. "There is still a lot of racing to do and I'm not worried about the leader's jersey just yet," McLachlan said.

Sulzberger and Jongewaard both started the day 1'58 in arrears of McLachlan and although they remain roughly the same time down, their overall placings have improved because of this stage.
