Mitchelton Bay Cycling Classic - Men
Criterium 2: Eastern Park - Stage Details

Stage one winner Caleb Ewan has produced back-to-back victories at the Mitchelton Bay Cycling Classic in Geelong following another tactically sound race by ORICA-GreenEDGE.

The result mirrors the 21-year-old’s efforts in 2015 and elevates him to the clear second highest stage winner at the ‘Bay Crits’ with a total of nine stage wins over the past five years. Australian sprint legend Robbie McEwen remains the highest with an impressive 17 victories over ten editions.

Ewan’s second win for the year came from another bunch sprint after his ORICA-GreenEDGE teammates closed a dangerous breakaway covered by debutant Alexander Edmondson.

“The team again rode so well,” Ewan said. “It was handy having Alex up in the breakaway.”
