The finale of stage 3 of the Tour Down Under saw an elite group of race favourites contest the finish in Campbelltown after Corkscrew Hill split the race, and when the dust settled, Simon Gerrans (Orica-GreenEdge) was back in command atop the overall standings.

Sergio Henao (Sky) and the impressive Michael Woods (Cannondale) led over the top of the climb, but were pegged back by a select group of chasers on the sinuous descent.

The sprint finish was a gripping one, but the canny Gerrans – three times an overall winner at the Tour Down Under – had just enough in his legs to squeeze out Rohan Dennis (BMC). Race leader Jay McCarthy (Tinkoff) had to settle for fourth in the sprint, missing out on a time bonus, and so he surrendered the ochre jersey to Gerrans, albeit by just 3 seconds.
