He did it again! In Victor Harbor, reigning King of the Sprint Caleb Ewan (Orica-Scott) also won the second mass sprint of the Tour Down Under, after he had taken home the first stage two days earlier. This time, he beat world champion Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Niccolo Bonifazio (Bahrain-Merida) to the line. Needless to say, Ewan becomes the first rider ever to successfully defend the King of the Sprint title.
Friday’s stage to Campbelltown could see another mass sprint finish. If not, we’ll probably have to wait until Sunday’s final stage in Adelaide to witness the third title race of the season.
