by

From the Tour Down Under, the results so far, overall (ochre jersey):
Classic: Greipel, Lotto-Belisol
Stage 1: Greipel
Stage 2: Kohler, BMC
Stage 3: Greipel
Stage 4: Kohler
Stage 5: Gerrans, GreenEdge

Stage winners:
Classic: Greipel
Stage 1: Greipel
Stage 2: Clarke, UNI SA
Stage 3: Greipel
Stage 4: Friere, Katusha
Stage 5: Valverde, Movistar (doper!)

Overall going into the final stage:
1. Gerrans 18h.49m.24s
2. Valverde, Movistar (same time)
3. Machado, Radio Shack-Nissan (-8 secs.)
4. Rogers, Team Sky (-14)
5. Dennis, UNI SA (-14)
6. Boasson Hagen, Team Sky (-18)
7. Bakelants, Radio Shack-Nissan (-19)
8. Moreno, Movistar (-23)
9. Matthews, Rabobank (-29)
10. Vorganov, Katusha (-32)

What a log jam going into the final stage, a 20 lap circuit that you can see here. Hill profile here. Yep, that is FLAT. Going to be tough to make up time on the leaders today, but with all those tight turns, there could be crashes.

From what I can figure out this starts at 9.10pm central time tonight, which is 1.10pm on Sunday in Australia. Too late for me but I will watch the delay tomorrow on Steephill.

    I got 2 out of 4 teams going into Sunday (thanks to DFM’s daughter). What will I emerge with? I think 1.
