Sprinter Matt Goss lead an Australian one-two for HTC-Highroad at the Cancer Council Classic in Adelaide.

Goss lead team-mate Mark Renshaw over the line as he continued his impressive start to the season, that already included a win in the Jayco Bay Classic earlier in the month.

"It's a great way to start the season with a win for the team," Goss said.

"January has been really good to me. With the guys that we have here, we have so much strength, all I really had to do was sprint.

"Grabshi (Bert Grabsch) and Danny (Pate) did a great job bringing back the break and Renshaw did the perfect job getting getting me and Cav (Mark Cavendish) into the right position.

"The plan was for Cav to sprint off Renshaw's wheel and for me to be on Cav's wheel to give us a couple of options. But on the last lap there was a crash and Cav had to brake a little, so I got onto Renshaw's wheel and he took me all the way to the line.

"Cav didn't go down and probably could have got back on the wheels but he saw that a gap had opened up so he left it open."
