Team Sky duo Michael Rogers and Richie Porte were third and fifth respectively in the Australian National Time Trial Championship.
The pair were among the last riders out on the 38.2 kilometre course around Learmonth and when Rogers stopped the clock in 46 minutes 36.30 seconds that put him top of the standings.
However Luke Durbridge (GreenEDGE) and his teammate Cameron Meyer, the defending champion, were both to go faster as Durbridge crossed the line in 46:20.44, seven seconds ahead of Meyer.
Porte followed up his third place in the road race on Sunday with fifth on 47:39.38.
Afterwards Rogers, the three-time world time trial champion, was happy to have made the podium considering what proved a testing finale, telling www.cyclingnews.com: "It was a tough course out there, the wind was just... I was struggling to stay on the road really. Unfortunately I was held up with some traffic; unfortunately the roads weren't closed so I don't know how much I lost there – maybe 10, 15 seconds so that's the way it is. But you know at the end of the day I'm really happy with the result and it's good to edge my way back onto the podium again."
Rogers will now head to the Tour Down Under in Adelaide as part of Team Sky's seven-man squad for the opening WorldTour race of the season.
