Tour de Korea
Stage 5: Yeosu to Gangjin - Stage Details

Neo-pro sprinter Caleb Ewan has taken his third stage victory at the Tour de Koreatoday, bonus seconds extending his overall lead to eight seconds after the fifth of eight stages.

Ewan, who won stages two and three, narrowly held off yesterday’s winner Patrick Bevin (Avanti Racing) after a final classified climb, peaking with five kilometres remaining, failed to split up racing ahead of a furious downhill finish.

“It was actually really tough today,” Ewan said. “There was the climb close to the finish and I went pretty hard into that to stay at the front so that took a lot out of me.”
