2014 Tour of Gippsland: Stage 6 Photo Gallery

Adelaide?s Tim Roe (Budget Forklifts) has sensationally clinched the 2014?Tour of Gippsland on the final day in Traralgon. Roe claimed the Tour on the final stage after bridging solo to a seven-man breakaway and finishing 11 seconds ahead of overnight Tour leader Raphael Freinstein (CharterMason). Roe began the day two seconds behind Freinstein, and rode aggressively to find himself in the winning breakaway which included general classification contenders Cameron Bayly (Health.com.au/Search2Retain)?and Mitchell Lovelock-Fay (Avanti Racing). Roe?s victory makes amends for his 2008 Tour of Gippsland campaign, where he began the final stage with a 20 second advantage, only to lose the leaders jersey to Tasmania?s Bernard Sulzberger. Roe took out the Tour five seconds ahead of Bayly while Freinstein held on for third overall, nine seconds back. For the second year running, Commonwealth gold medallist Alex Edmondson (SASI) claimed stage honours, out-sprinting his breakaway companions Patrick Bevin (Health.com.au/Search2Retain) and Lovelock-Fay. The Subaru National Road Series continues on September 14 with the innugural women?s Amy?s Otway Classic before the men?s calendar moves to Canberra for the National Capital Tour beginning on September 19. 2014 Tour of Gippsland: Stage 6 Results
