Stage 3

Gladstone Circuit, 120km 


Race Writeup

There was not too much hard racing on the thirds stage of the Tour of New Zealand. There were some breakaway attempts, but T-Mobile didn't seem to want to let anything go and they were brought back relatively quickly. 

The bunch rode tempo around the 'lumpy' 30 kilometre circuit for most of the stage. Some legs were still trying to recover from the hills on Stage 2 and many were probably thinking about the 12 kilometre mountain-top finish on Stage 4. A finish which requires 12km of climbing to the line.

The bunch sprint was won by Oenone Wood (T-Mobile) - her second in a row. The race lead was retained by Ina-Yoko Teutenberg (T-Mobile). The magenta team has won every stage so far in this tour and held the jersey since the victory by Teutenberg on Stage 1.

Post-race Comments

Ina-Yoko Teutenberg was realistic about her chances of taking the leader's jersey to the top of Admiral Hill and retaining it. "I don't think I'll have this jersey at the end of tomorrow's stage," she told race commentator, Marty Hewson. "We have some options in the team and there are some other riders going well at the moment too."

When asked if she subscribed to the fears about the finish at Admiral Hill, Oenone Wood said "I think any fears about the climb are justified."
