Santos Tour Down Under - Race Overview

ORICA-SCOTT have capped off the 2017 Tour Down Under with four stage wins, second overall and the sprint jersey following the final stage in Adelaide this afternoon.

22-year-old Caleb Ewan sprinted to victory on the city-center circuit, ahead of world champion Peter Sagan (Bora Hansgrohe) and Marko Kump (UAE Abu Dhabi), for his fourth stage win and to secure the sprint jersey by a convincing 12points.

“I actually joked with my girlfriend at the start of the week that I would go for four stages but I didn’t actually think it was going to be possible,” Ewan said of his success at the 2017 Tour Down Under.

“I kept backing up and feeling good every day, the team backed me 100% on the days that could have gone either way and I really have them to thank."
