New Zealand cyclist Sam Horgan has taken out the Tour of The Great South Coast this afternoon.
With his emotional parents on the sidelines, Horgan and his Budget Forklifts team mates fought off strong attacks from Drapac Cycling's Darren Lapthorne on the hilly and windswept Camperdown circuit, to ensure he retained the lead he secured on day one of the five day tour.
He held the yellow jersey by 19 seconds from Euride's Alex Edmondson in second. Lapthonre was in third, 49 seconds behind.
Edmondson took line honours in today's stage nine road race ahead of Thomas Hamilton and Lapthorne. He was also named the tour's rising star.

Woolley was named most aggresive rider.
Huon-Genesys team member Pat Shaw was named king of the mountain, while GPM Data's Scott Law took out the Criterium Championship.
Euride won the teams category.
Full wrap up in tomorrow's edition of The Standard.
