Tour de Korea - Race Overview

Neo-pro sprinter Caleb Ewan has wrapped up overall victory at the Tour de Korea, claiming his tenth professional and first ever stage race win in the process.

Ewan entered the final day of racing with an eight second advantage and cleverly secured the victory with intermediate bonus seconds before finishing fifth on the stage.

It wraps up a highly successful Tour for ORICA-GreenEDGE who finish with four stage wins, the overall title, best young rider and points classification with Ewan, and third overall for final lead out man Adam Blythe.

“The goal coming into the week was to get a stage win and we got four, plus the sprint, young rider and general classification,” Ewan said. “It’s been a massive bonus.”
