Team Sky rounded off their Tour Down Under in style as Chris Sutton led a one-two in the final stage in Adelaide.
"It was the perfect lead-out and to get a one-two is amazing."
A week earlier the new outfit marked their pro debut with a similar victory in the Cancer Council Helpline Classic, Greg Henderson leading home Sutton on that occasion.
But this was their first success in the main event, the lead-out train again working to perfection to put Henderson and Sutton in pole position at the end of the 90-kilometre stage six around central Adelaide.
And this time it was Sutton who applied the finishing touch, powering across the line in first while a late surge from Henderson snatched second place.
"It's all about teamwork," said a delighted Sutton afterwards. "We spoke about tactics beforehand and we took control with around 2km to go.
"It was the perfect lead-out, all the boys played their part and I just went as long as I could. If Hendy comes around me, he comes around me but to get a one-two is amazing.
"We're a new team and it's all about learning about each other but everyone's already working so well together," he added.
To round off a stunning day for Team Sky, Henderson's display saw him move up to third on the overall standings.
His victory in an intermediate sprint early in the final stage proved all-important in him taking the final podium place.
With the field finishing in a bunch it meant that HTC-Columbia's André Greipel topped the general classification thanks to his three stage wins earlier in the race.
Greipel crashed out of last year's Tour Down Under when he hit a parked police motorbike, ending his title defence and sidelining him for four months following shoulder surgery.
