Genesys' Gippsland domination continued on day three, with criterium ace Steele Von Hoff picking up his third victory of the race. Von Hoff won a tight sprint over stage two winner Philip Grenfell (Bikebug.com) and Luke Davison (Jayco-2XU).

The team took out a number of the intermediate sprints before assembling at the front with their trademark 'orange train' to lead Von Hoff to another sprint victory.

A scare midway through the race saw overall leader Nathan Haas (Genesys Wealth Advisers) go down in a crash. After a lap out, the 22 year old continued and appeared to be uninjured.
