Tasmanian Ben Grenda (Team Polygon Australia) has claimed the honours in the Ulverstone Criterium, Stage 5 of the Tour of Tasmania. Grenda, guest-riding for the team now he is back home from racing with Rapha Condor - Sharp, had indicated the previous Sunday that he was in good form riding to fourth in the Launceston - New Norfolk Cycle Classic.

The 22-year-old former under 23 national criterium champion out-kicked current national criterium champion Anthony Giacoppo (Genesys Wealth Advisers) and Search2Retain-recruit, Scott Law who is the current under 23 criterium champion.

"To get a win here is pretty special," Grenda said.

"I did this circuit first when I was 13, so I've been here a while now."

The stage win was Grenda's third at the Tour of Tasmania since 2010 when he raced for the Genesys team.

The general classification lead of Lachlan Norris (Drapac) was not under threat during the criterium with the part-time mountain biker holding a nine-second lead heading into the potentially decisive afternoon road stage.

Campbell Flakemore (Genesys Wealth Advisers) put the pressure on early, streaking away on lap five ahead of the first intermediate. With the battle for the sprint jersey tight, overnight leader Neil Van Der Ploeg (Search2Retain) ensured he just pipped Daniel Barry (Felt NZ) for second over the line.

The battle between Van Der Ploeg and Barry continued with the pair going head to head to claim any stray points on two more intermediate sprints with the Victorian holding a seven-point lead over the Kiwi heading into the morning stage.

Barry's efforts were not in vain collecting 14-points to Van Der Ploeg's five, enough to give the FeltNZ rider the lead in the Sewell Sweepers Sprint Championship by two points.

With 11 laps remaining, Nathan Elliott (Charter Mason / Drapac Development Team), local rider Luke Ockerby (Budget Forklifts), Malcolm Rudolph (Drapac) and Josh Taylor (GPM - Wilson Racing) skipped ahead of the peloton. The four stayed ahead for several laps but with Genesys and Drapac driving the peloton, it was only a matter of time before they were brought back. With four laps to go, the race was back together and a bunch sprint loomed.

Stage 6 of the Tour of Tasmania, a 77.8km road stage between Ulverstone and Penguin via Gunns Plains gets underway on Friday afternoon.
