Tour Down Under Stage 5: Counting Heads

After cresting the first ascent of Willunga Hill, Lars Boom (Astana) along with several teammates hit the front of the drastically reduced peloton to toughen up the race for his man, Luis Leon Sanchez.  Both men are new to Astana and are eager to show team management what they can do for the team in the first ProTour race of the 2015 calendar.  Showing that he is never one to miss a move, you can see the Ochre Jersey of race leader, Rohan Dennis (BMC) keeping a sharp eye on all of the tactics being deployed.
