People's Choice Classic - Santos Tour Down Under - Race Overview

Australian criterium champion Caleb Ewan has defended his People’s Choice Classic crown as part of the Tour Down Under in Adelaide this evening.

The victory was a dream start to a new combination between Ewan and German recruit Roger Kluge, with the pair set to work closely together throughout the 2017 season.

“I’m really happy it started off well with Roger,” Ewan said. “It was the first race I have raced with him and he dropped me off perfectly, right at the front, and that was the first time I had to touch the wind.”
