2013 Tour de France–Stage 4

2 Jul

Orice Green Edge

Four days into the Tour and the team that has made the biggest splash is Orica-GreenEdge. First their bus, then yesterday Simon Gerrans gets them their first ever Tour stage win and today Gerrans picks up their first ever yellow jersey when the team won the 25 kilometer Team Time-trial.

Not a bad week for the young Australian team.

Down by a few seconds at the mid-point, they finished the stage 1 second ahead of Omega Pharma-Quick Step and 3 seconds ahead of Sky.

I couldn’t be happier, I love it when the upstarts beat the big boys.
