Floris Goesinnen (Drapac Professional Cycling) has claimed a remarkable double by backing up Saturday's win in the 262km Melbourne to Warrnambool, with a solo victory in the 115km Shipwreck Coast Classic on Victoria's rugged south coast.

Teammate Rhys Pollock claimed second place 50 seconds in arrears with Alex Ray (Campolina) a further 11 seconds back.

Goesinnen made a solo attack on his four breakaway companions with five kilometres left to race, with no one able to answer his move.

"You do a lot of races every year and you don't get to win too many," he said after his second win in as many days. "It isn't like soccer, when you're always winning or losing.

"This is only my third win this year."

Earlier in 2012, Goesinnen won the second stage of the Flèche du Sud in Luxembourg as part of Drapac's annual European expedition.

The 28-year-old said that it was tough out on the road on Sunday, given the after-effects of a very tough day on the bike during the Melbourne to Warrnambool.

"I didn't have the best sleep and it was basically hard all day," he said. "Because it's 120kms, most people think it's easier but most of the bunch had seven hours of racing from yesterday, so from the start, everybody was already fatigued."

Sunday's race was marked by attacked from the outset with a 12-man break finally settling not far in. Among the riders in the escape were Josh Taylor, Chris Jory, Sam Rutherford (GPM-Wilson Racing), Gordon McCauley, Goesinnen, Pollock (Drapac), Brenton Jones, Nathan Earle (Genesys Wealth Advisers), Jay Bourke (John West Cycling), Henry Morley (Plan B Racing) and Karl Evans (SASI) gaining well over two minutes on the field.

As the kilometres ticked down, so did the break's advantage and with 30km left to race, the group's lead was 1:44 over the front of the field.

With the peloton closing in, five members of the break decided it was time to go for it. Goesinnen lead the way from Ray, Pollock, Rutherford and Bourke also escaping and soon building an advantage of over a minute to their pursuants.
