Cameron Meyer wins 2011 Santos Tour Down Under

In the final stage of the Tour Down Under, Ben Swift (GBR) of Sky Procycling took his second stage win, tailed by teammate Greg Henderson (NZL) and Aussie Matthew Goss (HTC Highroad). As expected on this 90km round course starting and finishing in Adelaide, race leader Cameron Meyer (Garmin Cervélo) kept the leaders jersey, but only just, as Matthew Goss came within 2 seconds of the lead while Ben Swift moved into third and Michael Matthews in fourth.

The Young Riders rankings were identical with the General Classification for the top four places with Meyer taking “Cycle Instead” Young Rider Jersey as well.
