Updated: January 19, 2012, 00:06

ADELAIDE, Australia (AP) Germany's Andre Greipel won the third stage of cycling's Tour Down Under in a bunch sprint on Thursday to regain the overall lead he had conceded a day earlier.

Greipel, riding for the Lotto-Belisol team, started the 84-mile stage from Unley in suburban Adelaide to Victor Harbor 2 seconds behind Switzerland's Martin Kohler on general classification.

His second stage-win of the 2012 tour - he won the first stage on Tuesday and has now won 10 stages of the Australian event overall - allowed him to reclaim the tour leader's ocher jersey.

Yauheni Hutarovich of Belarus, riding for FDJ-Big MAT, was second in the stage and Edvald Boasson Hagen of Norway, from Britain's Sky Procycling team, was third.

Greipel won the Tour Down Under in 2008 and 2010.
