Scarfe scores in Maffra

Shaw takes sixth, holds lead

Dale Scarfe scored McDonagh Blake-Witness its first stage victory at the Tour of Gippsland this year, holding off Richard Lang (Team Jayco Skins) in the final sprint. A surprise contender in the final sprint after the 85 kilometre stage was Harrif Saleh (Malaysian National Team) who finished third.

Patrick Shaw (Virgin Blue-RBS Morgans) continues to lead the overall race after taking the leader’s jersey on the morning’s stage. Former leader Ben Grenda (Genesys Wealth Advisers) slipped further down the overall standings as Joseph Lewis (Drapac-Porsche) jumped up into second place, two seconds behind Shaw.

“The yellow jersey is not weighing heavily on my shoulders,” said Shaw. “I am starting to think that I can hold on to it until Sunday.”
