Local rider Kane Walker (Team 2XU) claimed the opening Tour of Gippsland stage after winning a bunch sprint in Boolarra. Thomas Robinson (Lawson Homes Cycling Team) took second place from Cody Stevenson (Team Budget Forklifts).

The 143-strong field, the biggest in the Scody Cup to date, starting in Traralgon included Australian cyclist of the Year, Leigh Howard along with Beijing Olympian Jack Bobridge, Commonwealth gold medallist Sean Finning and riders from over seas and interstate.

Riders traveled in a controlled group through the undulating Gippsland countryside, remaining tightly packed until the 20-kilometre mark when a local schoolboy officially started the race.

While the members of the peloton took the opportunity to set the pace at around 60 kilometres an hour, further back a group of riders fell in a spectacular incident resulting in Search2Retain rider Huge Singleton and Dixon Homes’ Peter Aquilina taking a trip to hospital with serious head and collarbone injuries. Singleton was later airlifted to Melbourne for further treatment.

As the main peloton splintered a lead group containing favourites Howard and Bobridge formed. Howard held fast in the sprint leg to take the overall sprint leader jersey, leaving Bobridge battling with a puncture three kilometres out from the finish.

Howard was presented with the Most Aggressive Rider title while Marc Williams (Suzuki-Canberra) from the ACT claimed the King of the Mountain Jersey.
