    This tough stage will suit a tough sprinter like matthew goss /img/vbsmilies/smilies/wink.gif He's the obvious choice with cavendish looking so unfit.

    I've searched on line to see if there is any coverage of this race - but unfortunately I haven't been able to locate any "online" coverage.

    The only coverage we get of this race is on SKY - but I have no subscribed to the SKY package this year/img/vbsmilies/smilies/frown.gif

    Stage 1 News
    Goss leads Tour Down Under; Lance Armstrong sits in 81st After time bonuses, Goss was credited with a time for the stage of 3 hours, 16 minutes, 58 seconds and leads the race on general classification by four seconds from Greipel with McEwen a further two seconds back. Armstrong, Cavendish and Farrar were among a large group in the field of 133 riders credited with a time 10 seconds from the overall leader. Goss benefited from an oustanding team rier and showed his exceptional early season fitness to follow up his win in the tour's prologue criterium on Sunday. As the peleton hauled in a five-man break which led the field from the 12th lap, Goss maneuvered to the front of the bunch and followed Renshaw's wheel until he was able to drive ahead of Greipel in the slightly uphill straight which led to the finish in the main street of Angaston village. Link: http://www.usatoday.com/sports/cycling/2011-01-18-tour-down-under-stage-one_N.htm Goss extends winning run Matt Goss continued his fine run of form by sprinting to victory on the opening stage of the Tour Down Under. The Australian, who triumphed in Sunday's Cancer Council Classic, was thrust into the firing line again by his HTC-Highroad team-mates and powered to the line ahead of defending champion André Greipel (Omega Pharma-Lotto) and compatriot Robbie McEwen (RadioShack).

The first king of the mountain climb at Black top road was the launching pad for a three man attack featuring Gorka Izagirre (Euskaltel), Luke Roberts (UniSA) and Julien Loubet (Ag2R-la Mondiale). Roberts took the king of the mountain points and soon the riders were back in the peloton. Link: http://www.dailypeloton.com/displayarticle.asp?pk=18053 Santos Tour Down Under Stage 1: Matt Goss's stunning form continues as he takes race lead Matt Goss of HTC-Highroad has continued his storming start to the 2011 season by winning Stage 1 of the Santos Tour Down Under following a bunch sprint, the victory marking the 23-year-old Tasmanian’s fourth and biggest win of the year. Defending champion André Greipel, who won last year’s race while riding for HTC-Columbia but has now moved to Omega Pharma-Lotto, came second, with Robbie McEwen of Team RadioShack third.

Goss took out the stage ahead of defending tour champion Andre Greipel and Australian legend Robbie McEwen. As expected, the 138km stage from the northern Adelaide suburb of Mawson Lakes came down to a bunch sprint and Goss proved too powerful on the slight uphill finish. He gained a perfect lead out from HTC-Highroad team mate Mark Renshaw and is continuing his outstanding start to the year.

White said that while Farrar has been spoken little of as a threat this week, he is ready to show that the anticipated head-to-head clash between the Isle of Man's Mark Cavendish (HTC-Highroad) and German Andre Greipel (Omega Pharma-Lotto) is more than a two-rider spectacle. Link: http://www.theage.com.au/sport/cycling/tyler-the-american-flyer-right-in-the-sprinting-mix-20110117-19u2m.html Third place boosts McEwen's Tour mindset Australian cycling legend Robbie McEwen is only interested in wins, not third placings. But that result on Sunday night in Adelaide's Cancer Council Classic was a telling confidence boost for the star sprinter ahead of this week's Tour Down Under. McEwen was buoyed by the result behind the quinella of HTC-Columbia pair Matt Goss and Mark Renshaw because he was held up in a crash on the second-last corner. Link: http://news.smh.com.au/breaking-news-sport/third-place-boosts-mcewens-tour-mindset-20110117-19tqx.html Goss quickly backs up for TDU dream start MATTHEW Goss continued his dream start to the ProTour, winning the Tour Down Under's first stage. The Tasmanian backed up Sunday's criterium victory in the Cancer Council Classic by edging out defending champion Andre Griepel and Australia's Robbie McEwen in a bunch sprint finish in the Barossa Valley. The victory firmly establishes Goss as one of the race favourites, with his HTC-Highroad team once again dominating the peloton when it counted on the 138km stage from Mawson Lakes to Angaston.

The Tour Down Under starts tomorrow, and boasts its best field. While it again includes American seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong - for whom this will be his farewell to international cycling - the big focus has been on the strength of the sprinters and their crack lead-out ''trains''. Link: http://www.smh.com.au/sport/cycling/mcewen-warns-of-renegade-factor-20110116-19skd.html Lance - I didn't come to sit in bunch WHILE the fast men of cycling are poised to upstage Lance Armstrong in his last hurrah in Australia, the multiple Tour de France champion says he will go down fighting as he begins his farewell to professional cycling at the Santos Tour Down Under, starting today. One of the major drawcards of the race he used to launch his comeback three years ago, the Tour is the last major event outside the US Armstrong will contest.

At a breezy 138km, stage 1 from Mawson Lakes to Angaston seems preordained to finish in a bunch sprint, but Brown explains that the riders may find a surprise or two out on the road. The course is considerably lumpier in reality than it appears on paper. Link: http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/brown-warns-of-difficulties-in-santos-tour-down-unders-opening-stages
