Tour Down Under 2014: stage one – photo gallery

Simon Gerrans victorious as the UCI WorldTour season kicks off Down Under

The 2014 UCI WorldTour season is underway after pro cycling’s elite rolled out in Adelaide for the first stage of the Tour Down Under.

And as good starts to the year go, it will take some doing to beat Simon Gerrans’ (Orica-GreenEDGE) current form.

Gerrans, crowned Australian national champion a week ago, outsprinted Andre Greipel (Lotto-Belisol) to grab the first ochre jersey of the race.

The former Team Sky rider now faces the prospect of defending the jersey for five days in order to secure overall victory for the second time after previously triumphing in 2012.

UCI WorldTour photographer Stefano Sirotti was on hand to capture all the action from the first stage. see how the race unfolded in the gallery below.
