Shannon Johnson (CharterMason Giant) sprinted to victory opening stage of the Tour of the Great South Coast in Mount Gambier ahead of Brenton Jones (Avanti) and teammate Raphael Freinstein.

"To come out and start the tour with a win here is great," said Johnson. "I really needed it, and the team really needed it so it's nice to reward the boys for all their hard work.

"I would like to get a couple more stage wins, it's definitely achievable but we need to see where it sits with our overall team goals," said the father of two, who now sits fifth overall after two stages.

The 30 lap criterium was animated by numerous rides attacking the peloton in attempts to earn bonus seconds available throughout the race and pull on the first leader's jersey of the Tour. Sam Witmitz's (Budget Forklifts) attacking riding and fourth place on the stage saw him don the Tour leaders jersey.

The Tour continues this afternoon with a 135 kilometre road race from Mount Gambier to Port MacDonnell.
