    NZ's Williams third in final tour stage

    In-form Kiwi cyclist Georgia Williams goes close to toppling the road time trial world champion in a powerhouse finish to an Australian tour.

    Georgia Williams has followed up her notable double in New Zealand with a fifth placing at a leading women's cycling tour in Victoria.

    Kiwi professional Williams was third in the closing individual time trial at the Herald Sun Tour, beaten home by two world class international rivals - Annemiek van Vleuten (Netherlands) and Katrin Garfoot (Australia).

    Riding for Mitchelton-Scott, she finished within two seconds of victorious team-mate and reigning road time trial world champion van Vleuten.

    Her performance in the 1.6km blast left her just over a minute behind tour winner Brodie Chapman of Australia.

    Rio Olympic track rider Williams, 24, snared victory in the road race and time trial at last month's national championships in Napier.

    Other Kiwis to perform in Geelong were Linda Villumsen and Kate McIlroy, who placed 10th and 11th on general classification respectively.
