Aussie Champs: Lappers (?) Laps 'Em

Unheralded Darren Lapthorne is your Australian Road Champion after he and a teammate cracked the peloton and won by more than two minutes over bigger names like Matt Wilson, Baden Cooke, Simon Gerrans, etc. The lesson? You can't win a pro race anywhere unless you're in top form, even if you have a fancy contract and a flat in Girona.
