BENDIGO's Jack Haig has regained the lead in the Subaru National Road Cycling Series following Sunday's breakthrough victory in the Tour of Tasmania.
Haigand his Huon-Genesys team-mates withstood many challenges to win the Caterpillar-backed classic.
The 19-year-old joins cycling superstars Cadel Evans, Richie Porte and Cameron Meyer on the Tour’s honour roll.
“It’s great to be able to finish the tour with the yellow jersey and be on that long list of people that have won this race, I’m very honoured,” Haig said.
Last year's Tour was won by Barkers Creek's Lachlan Norris.
Haig hit the lead on day three of the eight day tour and finished one minute, 43 seconds ahead of Bendigo's Robbie Hucker, racing for Drapac.
Another of Drapac's stars, Darren Lapthorne from Bendigo was fourth in the tour.
Launceston's Ben Grenda won Sunday's finale to the tour, a criterium in Devonport.
There is little rest in the NRS series.
The 256km Melbourne to Warrnambool is on this Saturday.
There will be men's and women's NRS racing on Sunday when cyclists contest the Shipwreck Coast Classic along Victoria's Great Ocean Road.
