Tour Down Under Stage 4: A Change at the Front

With a new three man break up the road, Matteo Bono (Lampre-Merida) came to the front of the peloton along with a teammate to drive the pace in hopes catching the men up the road and of softening up the group for their sprinter, Niccolo Bonifazio.  Lampre-Merida always brings a little color to the race with their bright pink sleeves, shocking green accents and purply blue shorts.  Leave it to the Italians to bring some style to their kit.
