Tour de Korea
Stage 6: Gangjin to Gunsan - Stage Details

Three-time stage winner Caleb Ewan has retained his overall lead heading into the penultimate day of the Tour de Korea, managing a fifth place on a tough stage six today.

Whilst the parcours supported another sprint finish, hot and windy conditions made it a more difficult than expected day of racing for much of the peloton.

Once again it was the tireless work of ORICA-GreenEDGE, led by Michael Hepburn, that ensured the bunch sprint.

The strong body of Wouter Wippet (Drapac Professional Cycling) was victorious in the final whilst ORICA-GreenEDGE battled behind in a scrappy final.

“For us it was not so much the wind that made the difference,” sport director David McPartland said of the conditions that saw many in the peloton struggle.
