• Porte wins stage, Gerrans closes on Tour Down Under title


    ADELAIDE, Australia: Richie Porte powered his way to win the fifth stage of the Tour Down Under on Willunga Hill on Saturday as fellow Australian Simon Gerrans consolidated his hold on first place overall. With one day left in the season-opening UCI World Tour race, Orica GreenEdge rider Gerrans leads Porte (BMC Racing) by nine seconds with Colombia’s Sergio Henao (Sky) a further two seconds back in third. The fifth stage of the Tour Down Under, with two ascents of Willunga Hill, invariably produces the most exciting racing of the week and generally decides the overall winner.
