MEDIA RELEASE

Anthony Giacoppo of Huon Salmon Genesys Wealth Advisors has won stage 1 of the Tour of Gippsland and by doing so wears the Yellow Jersey of Tour Leader.

Anthony demonstrated his superb finishing speed and superior bike handling ability to win the bunch sprint ahead of Australia’s fastest sprinters. Anthony will be heading to the Tour of the South Coast whereby he is the defending Champion from last year, but hopes to add a few more stage wins to his palmares before the conclusion of the Tour of Gippsland.

“ I will be hoping to add a few more stage wins as I don’t think the overall is possible for me as I will have to ride for Nathan Earle as the climbs might be a little too tough for me to get over in contention, but we will have to see. “

Anthony has been one of Australia’s leading riders for the last few seasons and remains hopeful that one of the bigger teams of the world will notice his consistant winning ability and give him the chance to turn professional. Previous team mates of Anthony’s have turned professional with some very notable success stories amongst them like Richie Porte, Will Clarke, Nathan Haas and Steele Van Hoff.
