Clarke puts Fly V on notice with TT win

Rolfe with breathing room overall

Praties' William Clarke took a commanding victory on stage 4 of the GMHBA Tour of Geelong. His win the 28.2km time trial through the Barrabool hills also meant that Clarke becomes the 2009 Victorian Open time trial champion.

Clarke finished 25 seconds ahead of teammate Dylan Newell, and 28 seconds ahead of David Kemp (Fly V Australia). Queenslander Darren Rolfe (Fly V Australia) finished fourth but retained his yellow jersey.

“The course was outstanding, I was a little sore from my fall yesterday but I managed to pull up well this morning”, said Clarke afterwards.

Clarke now sits third on the general classification, 11 seconds behind Kemp and 2:17 behind race leader Rolfe.

Tomorrow will see the peloton race a 46km criterium in Geelong's Eastern Gardens.

Today's stage and the next three days will see numbers in the peloton swell as the 2009 Victorian Open road championships are being held in conjunction with the final stages of the GMHBA Tour of Geelong.
