Giacoppo gets surprise stage win

McMurdo, Sime keep professionals off the podium

A late race breakaway saw the professional riders miss out on the final stage positions, but Rabobank’s Graeme Brown’s fifth place was enough to assure him the overall win. Anthony Giacoppo won the stage ahead of Hilton McMurdo and Andrew Sime after a small bunch sprint.

Giacoppo’s final stage win jumped him up to second overall behind Brown. That dropped Meyer brothers – Cameron and Travis – down to third and fourth overall.
