Cameron Peterson (Virgin Blue RBS Morgans) claimed a solo stage victory on the Tour of Toowoomba’s third stage. Peterson crossed the line some seven seconds ahead of the chasing riders, with Dale Parker (National Junior Road Team) taking second as he was tailed across the line Peterson’s teammate Patrick Shaw.

Peter Herzig (Team Budget Forklifts) lead a group of seven riders across the line, taking fourth place for himself, a further 15 seconds behind.

While the peloton finished the gruelling stage spread over nearly 30 minutes, the battle for general classification honours remains tight. Parker holds the Queensland race’s overall lead by a narrow two seconds over Shaw heading into the final criterium.

Peterson sits third on general classification thanks to his solo victory, which came after he attacked his break away companions on the final climb. Peterson would need to make up 19 seconds to claim the tour, however the Virgin Blue-RBS Morgans team is likely to focus on securing time bonuses for Shaw on the final stage later today.
