Australian sports director Matt White tucked into his ninth pie at the Tour Down Under today and is determined to break his own record by the end of the week.

White is directing ‘home' team Orica-GreenEdge to what he hopes will be overall victory via Simon Gerrans, who has worn the ochre leader's jersey since stage one. However, he is also on a mission to break his own record of 15 pies set at the 2011 edition of the race.
