Santos Tour Down Under 2014 Stage 5 Results
Well there was definitely a party on the hill today, and Sky's Richie Porte was fashionably fast to get to it. To say that final climb up Willunga Hill was a nail-biter is not saying much at all.
The thousands who lined the path all the way along the infamous Willunga Hill were on tenterhooks to see who would take out the jersey, but a surge from Richie close to the finish made it clear that today was Sky's day.
Meanwhile, BikeExchange did a pretty good job getting the party started, and making it heard, with our hooters and hot-to-take t-shirts.
