Tour Down Under: Hesjedal 11th in 2009 opener


TdUS6_Hesjedal2 TdUS6_Meier_Hesjedal_Lowe-post Team director Matt White was "very pleased" with Team Garmin's showing this past week in the Tour Down Under, in which Ryder Hesjedal finished 11th overall after throwing a scare in some opponents in the final stage once the initial breakaway was caught.

"This resulted in another dangerous split," Whitey wrote on the team blog, "with our highest GC rider Ryder in the group along with a wounded Cam (Meyer). The break was on for young and old, causing huge stress in the bunch with Ryder virtual leader on the road. Alas, they were caught late on the last 4 km lap. Though CJ (Chris Sutton) managed to finish 11th and Ryder 19th in the massive field sprint."
