People's Choice Classic: Fenn Top 15 in First Race of OPQS Road Season
Omega Pharma - Quick-Step Cycling Team rider Andrew Fenn finished 14th in the 30-lap People's Choice Classic — a 51km race preceding the Santos Tour Down Under — on Sunday in Adelaide.
Lotto Belisol sprinter Andre Greipel, who is a sprint favorite in the People's Choice Classic/Santos Tour Down Under after wins in the 2012 edition, was able to get the criterium victory as his team controlled the front into the final lap with a five rider leadout. Matthew Goss (Orica GreenEDGE) was 2nd, and Greg Henderson (Lotto Belisol) was 3rd.
OPQS looks next to Stage 1 of Santos Tour Down Under on Monday. The 135km stage features a flat final 3km, with one SKODA King of the Mountain at km 41.9, and three different sprint point sections.
