Team Gerolsteiner was happy at the end of the Down Under Classic on Sunday, bringing home a top-ten finish and a special jersey – even if there was a bit of confusion near the end of the race.

"It was a good start today in Adelaide," Peter Wrolich said on his website, peterwrolich.at. The Austrian sprinter came in 10th in the race. "I was looking after Heinrich Haussler in the finale, but he lost my wheel in the last curve. I didn't really sprint, just held my position and came in as tenth."

Haussler, who was born in Australia, came in as 25th, but took one of the special jerseys, since he won of the intermediate sprints along the way. "Heinrich really rode very well," said director sportif Reimund Dietzen. "You could see that he was super-motivated. He can keep on like this!"
