GC reshuffle sees Rowney edged out of yellow by three seconds

The Suzuki/Trek Team opened the team's account with victory in the Honda Hybrid Women's Tour Team Time Trial today at Drysdale in perfect race conditions.

The Canberra team had specifically targeted this stage of the tour and clearly has paid off for them. They took out stage 3 of the Tour by 19 seconds from the VIS Women's Road Team, who came within striking distance but fell short on the day and Team SASI rounding out the podium.

It was a nervous wait for the Suzuki/Trek team made up of Rebecca Wiasak, Allison Rice, Ailie McDonald, Laura Medley and Megan Bagworth after starting fourth today.

"We really didn't know that it was a winning ride and just had to wait it out," said Wiasak.

The win saw another change to the Honda Red Leaders Jersey, Wiasak now wearing the colours and young team mate Allison Rice donning the U/23 jersey. Rice at just 17 years old is set for a very bright future.

On her 23rd birthday Loren Rowney retained the green sprinters jersey.

It was a tough fought win by Suzuki and Wiasak paid tribute to her team and in particular Laura Medley who fell heavily in yesterday's stage suffering concussion and hospitalized for scans.

"She did an amazing job today to bounce back, all the girls rode exceptionally well on what was a demanding course," said Wiasak. "We came here to dominate and now we have the GC and U/23 classifications we are going to power on from here."

Tomorrow's Queen of the Mountain stage from Sorrento to Arthurs Seat is expected to be one of the critical stages in determining the general classification standings. The Russian National Team will be working hard to get Svetlana Boubnenkova into a winning position as they currently sitting just outside the top ten.
