BMC Takes All in Tour Down Under Stage 3!

Embedded image permalinkRohan Dennis won the stage ahead of team mate Cadel Evans, he now leads the overall classification, the King of the mountain and the Young rider classification. Cadel Evans, is second overall and leads the sprint classification. BMC Racing Team itself leads the team classification. Anything else?
Ah yes: Rohan Dennis will attempt the Hour Record on Sunday 8 February at the Velodrome Suisse in Grenchen. He's just training...
Richie Porte passed from 14th to 4th in the GC. Promising, what do you think? Especially thinking of the next stages...

Rohan Dennis:
"The plan for me was to attack at the bottom of the Torrens Hill climb to put the pressure on Richie Porte (Team Sky) and the other contenders and let Cadel just sit back. Obviously I was too far behind to actually follow that plan.  Obviously we are both protected riders but Cadel is still a leader in my eyes." 

Cadel Evans:
"We had a plan on covering on two bases, but of course I also want to be able to lend a favor to my teammates where I can and where it's favorable. We had Rohan and Peter ready to do an attack anywhere where they could and it worked out really well for us."
