The Tour of Tasmania has kicked off with the first two stages being held on the first day. Both rides were criteriums, with the first one 33 kilometres in length and the second one 54 kilometres.

Fierce racing saw the decisions come down to the wire, with the second race a true photo finish. The general classification leader dropped back into second overall after the second stage, thanks to all the time bonuses awarded.

The race is still underway until October 5.
