Ewan sets the record straight

Caleb Ewan’s (Orica-Scott) Abu Dhabi Tour didn’t start very well, with a crash in stage 1 and a certain victory in stage 2 lost after celebrating too early, but he put things right again in the fourth and final stage today, a 143 km circuit race on the Yas Marina Formula One circuit.

After a day in the rain, Ewan got the better of rivals Mark Cavendish (Team Dimension Data) and André Greipel (Lotto-Soudal), who has yet to win his first title race.

By winning the final stage, Ewan makes sure that at least a few extra days are added to his reign, which started on the first day of the Tour Down Under in January and was only interrupted for a few days this week in Abu Dhabi. We know that he will compete in Milano-Sanremo on 18 March, but it isn’t clear yet where he will race in the weeks leading up to that event.
