Tour Down Under: Hesjedal, Meier, Lowe in striking distance


TdUS3_Meier_Hesjedal With two stages remaining in the Tour Down Under, Team Garmin is still in the hunt. After Allan Davis won another stage Friday and strengthened his hold on the top of GC, Ryder Hesjedal is poised to strike in 11th place, 30 seconds off Davis' time. Giving Team Garmin multiple threats, Christian Meier and Trent Lowe are both 39 seconds off the lead.

Director Matt White described Friday's stage and the anticipation of the final two days of racing. "Ryder (above) went on the attack on the final climb and went away in a group of six. But in the end, the finish was controlled by the sprinters’ teams. Tomorrow is crunch time though. If the wind stays strong, then the bunch will split before we hit the final laps on the infamous Willunga circuit. We have three guys within striking distance, so anything is possible!"

And while you're waiting for Saturday's stage to begin, be sure to check out Los Angeles Times reporting on Timmy Duggan’s amazing return to racing less than nine months after his high-speed crash during the 2008 Tour de Georgia.
