It’s been an impressive rise through the ranks for Jay McCarthy. After turning pro in 2013 he was third in a stage of the Giro d’Italia in 2014, he was third overall at the Tour of Turkey in 2015 and now, on stage 2 of the 2016 Tour Down Under, he has his breakthrough win.

McCarthy outsprinted former TDU stage-winner Diego Ulissi to claim today’s race, putting himself into the ochre leader’s jersey in the process.

Tim Bardsley-Smith was on hand to capture the action from today’s stage.
