2014 Tour of Tasmania: Stage 4 Photo Gallery

New Zealand?s?Patrick Bevin?(health.com.au-search2retain) staged a gritty fight back to claim stage four honours and the overall Tour of Tasmania yellow leaders jersey in Penguin on Friday. Despite being dropped from the main group on the infamous Gunns Plains climb, Bevin fought back to re-join the leaders on the descent into Penguin before out-sprinting Drapac duo?Bernard Sulzberger?and?Lachlan Norris?to clinch victory. ?I got unhitched about half way up Gunns Plains ? it?s a really steep climb. I didn?t panic, I knew I was in for a long chase. I got over the top and could see [the leaders] not far ahead. Cam [Bayly] actually dropped back and got me, and rode the last 50 or 60 metres of the chase for me ? such a selfless thing.? Bevin began the day just one second behind stage one winner and overnight Tour leader?Ben Dyball?(Avanti Racing). Text via Cycling Australia Media Release
