Jayco Herald Sun Tour
Stage 2: Bendigo to Nagambie - Stage Details

20-year-old sprinter Caleb Ewan has claimed ORICA-GreenEDGE’s second consecutive victory at the Jayco Herald Sun Tour, taking out the stage two sprint into Nagambie.

Yesterday’s stage winner and current race leader Cameron Meyer also finished safely in the bunch to retain the yellow leader’s jersey.

With a strong lead out from his experienced teammates, Ewan entered the final U-turn 300m from the finish in perfect position and was too strong in the kick to the line.  

“A win is a win and they all feel good but it’s good to get a UCI (classified) win,” Ewan said. “I am aiming for five or six wins in UCI races this year so it’s good to get one on the board.”
