Long live the King!

We already have a King! Somewhat surprisingly, in the first stage of the Tour Down Under, favourite Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) decided not to go for the win himself, but to be the lead-out man for his teammate Sam Bennett. Bennett didn’t win, however, as Caleb Ewan (Orica-Scott) easily outsprinted Danny Van Poppel (Team Sky) in Lyndoch to take the very first King of the Sprint title ever.

Tomorrow’s second stage will probably prove to be too hilly for the sprinters, but we might see a new (or the same) King crowned at the end of the third stage in Victor Harbor on Thursday.
