Jayco Skins has taken the Tour of Gippsland lead after Alex Carver claimed victory in the race’s opening 33 kilometre criterium. Carver held off Patrick Shaw (Virgin Blue-RBS Morgans) and Joel Pearson (Genesys Wealth Advisers) during the final sprint in Wonthaggi.

The first of two stages wasn’t incident free however with both Rhys Gillett (Virgin Blue-RBS Morgans) and Peter Braunsteins (Apollo Bicycles) taken to hospital following crashes. It’s not yet clear whether the pair will be able to continue the tour with this afternoon’s 68.2 kilometre stage in Wonthaggi.

Full report, results and photos to follow.
