Jayco Herald Sun Tour

Tuesday's day three of the Jayco Herald Sun Tour saw another escape stay clear, resulting in a stage win for NSW's Trent Wilson while the GC stayed in the hands of Tasmanian Menzies. CyclingNews reporter John Trevorrow caught up with the key riders at the finish line.

Q: What does this win mean for the team?
A: It's great. When you come into a tour, first you aim is for a stage win and then the overall, and so far in this race we've played our cards just right. We had Trent Lowe in the move yesterday with Gerro and Henk. That gave us a good lead in the teams' class and gave our put our two GC guys up there. And we've put someone up there today and he's won the stage so it's gone perfect so far. I said after the first day that this is the best I've seen Willo (Trent Wilson) ride. He worked all race in the first crit, he was the big mover in the chase, and I said to him "I've never seen you ride better and I reckon you can win one this week," and there you go, stage three and he's got one. I felt better today. It was pretty easy back in the bunch. I seem to be getting better each day, so maybe by the last day I may be ready to do something.
