Ray tops break into Tuatapere

Roulston remains on top for another day

Auckland’s Alex Ray claimed the 48km stage three from Riverton to Tuatapere for his H and J Smith Outdoor World – Avanti Plus team in a six-man sprint.

Nick Lovegrove (Subway) and Aaron Gate (Creation Signs) completed the top three.

The three were part of six-strong break that stayed away in the morning's short stage. Considering the length of the stage, Ray said he was confident that if a move managed to establish itself it was always going to be hard to bring back.

"I was backing myself for most of the stage. Once we got away I knew we had a pretty good chance of staying away," the young New Zealander said. "I knew I had the legs."

Overnight leader Hayden Roulston remains in yellow courtesy of good tempo riding from his Calder Stewart team.
