Track star Scott Law (V Australia) triumphed in wet conditions to claim the opening stage of the Geelong Tour – the fifth race of Australia's National Road Series, and second of the Scody Cup. After taking out five stages of last month's Tour of Gippsland, Genesys Wealth Advisers' Steele Von Hoff was restricted to second place while Law's teammate Ben Kersten rounded out the podium.

Wet, greasy roads greeted the peloton for the morning stage and the early loops of the 48 kilometre circuit were marred by crashes with light drizzle continuing throughout the stage making life difficult for the riders.

There were 10 crashes over the 30 laps of the closed circuit street race, made hazardous by misty rain. Queensland's Ryan Macanally and his Budget Forklifts teammate Darcy Rosenland suffered cuts and abrasions.

With seven laps to go, V Australia took control of the bunch with Law first over the finish line.

The Geelong Tour continues on Wednesday afternoon with Stage 2, a 79.6 kilometre trek from Lara to the You Yangs.
