BikeBug.com's Andrew Crawley has prevailed after a two-man breakaway escaped the peloton at the halfway mark of Thursday's fifth stage of the Tour of Tasmania. The New South Welshman proved too strong for his breakaway companion, Trent Morey (Lawson Homes) who fell back slightly with a kilometre remaining in the stage, allowing Crawley to claim the first win for his team at the final Scody Cup round on the 71.4 kilometre stage.

The peloton was keen to preserve as much energy as possible heading into Friday's decisive afternoon stage to Penguin, and so buoyed by the earlier attack of his teammate, Phil Grenfell (BikeBug.com) led the main bunch over the line to claim the final place on the stage podium.

Crawley, clearly happy with the win, explained he had not won a substantial race since the 110 kilometre Blaney to Bathurst in 2008, and described his victory today as the biggest he's experienced in what is essentially a part-time career with the 28-year-old running his own performance-based marketing company.

"This tops everything," he said. "There's no way I can win in a sprint so I have to break away."

In the race for overall honours, the lead of Cam Peterson (V Australia) was cut by just one second, with National Road Series leader Nathan Haas eyeing yet another title to add to those won at the Tour of Geelong and at the Tour of Gippsland.

How it unfolded

It was another fast and furious start to stage 5, with the pace pushing 55km/h as the peloton left Westbury behind them and with National Road Series leader Nathan Haas in second overall, the Genesys outfit was keen to follow any moves off the front while sharing the workload with V Australia.

An early two-man breakaway was nullified and at the 14.2 kilometre mark, Mark Jamieson (Jayco-2XU), Caleb Jones (BikeBug.com) and Haas fighting it out for the first sprint points of the afternoon. Nine kilometres down the road in Carrick, Jamieson trailed BikeBug's Chris Jory and Aaron Donnelly (Jayco-AIS) over the line at the second intermediate sprint.

A break was finally allowed and grew steadily as the race headed towards Blacknell, with Crawley and Morey escaping for a gap of up to four-and-a-half minutes. V Australia, looking for around a minute to get ahead of team classification rivals Jayco-2XU, went about controlling the bunch and maintained an easy tempo.

With around 30 kilometres left to travel, Crawley, Mowrey and Caleb Jones (Bikebug.Com) shared the spoils on the third and final intermediate sprint while the two climbs of the stage loomed, as the peloton appeared to lose some of its steam and it became quite evident that this would indeed be a day for the breakaway to succeed.
