Rhys Pollock (Drapac) has been rewarded for his daring attack seven laps into the 30-lap criterium, moving ahead of his co-conspirators Michael Freiberg (V Australia) and Glenn O'Shea (Team SASI Cycling) in the final dive to the finish line for a four-second victory in the 11th stage of the Tour of the Murray in Ouven.

It was Drapac's first win of the Tour, despite having Adam Phelan well-placed on general classification, the 20-year-old also leading the Rising Star classification.

Freiberg took out stage 6 on Tuesday and has proved to be the form rider from the V Australia line-up. The result had no bearing on the race for overall honours with Pat Shaw (Genesys) maintaining his 15 second advantage over teammate Steele Von Hoff.

How it unfolded

Phelan was again aggressive from the outset, claiming the opening prime on lap 6. Kiwi Rico Rogers (Jayco VIS/Apollo) tried his luck unsuccessfully before Pollock made his move, gaining 15 seconds on the bunch.

O'Shea and Freiberg joined Pollock and together, managed to increase the gap to 25.v

The orange train of Genesys took control at the front of the bunch however their tempo couldn't get the gap down by any more than five seconds. With five laps to go, the three rider's lead had increased to 30 seconds however with the chase well and truly on, splits started to appear in the main bunch.
