Oliveira enjoys top-six finish

Matthew Oliveira achieved a sixth-place overall finish at the three-day Tour of Southern Highlands in Georgia at the weekend.

Oliveira, 18, finished thirteenth in the time-trial, eight seconds behind the leader, fifth in the circuit race before helping his team-mate finish in the top ten in the road race

The event was Oliveira's third appearance for Hot Tubes, a top junior development cycling team in the United States.

Oliveira was first invited to compete for the team after his superb performances at the Commonwealth Youth Games in Nassau, Bahamas, last summer where he won gold medals in the time-trial and bronze in the road race.
