Steele Von Hoff has claimed yet another win for Genesys Wealth Advisers, reigning supreme in the fifth stage of the Tour of the Murray River, a 71 kilometre morning drag between Echuca and Kyabram.

Von Hoff just pipped Ben Kersten (Swan Hill Heart Of The Murray) on the line with overnight leader Pat Shaw (Genesys) two seconds off the pace leading the first group to the finish.

There were several splits in the peloton due to a strong headwind enroute to Kyabram and two major crashes – one within the final 15 kilometres which reports suggested was caused by a moto scout, while the second was at two kilometres to go.

The pace was hot under sunny skies and the early break of around 25 riders was brought back at the 20 kilometre mark.

Bikebug.com's Joseph Lewis was aggressive over the stage's intermediates, adding six points to his total to overtake V Australia's Johnnie Walker in the Sprint Championship. Nicholas Sanderson (Genesys) remains third.

Stage 6 gets underway this afternoon with Shaw holding a nine second advantage over Von Hoff, with Drapac's Adam Phelan next best 16 seconds off the pace.
