Tour de Korea
Stage 7: Gunsan to Daejun - Stage Details

Neo-pro sprinter Caleb Ewan has sprinted to his fourth stage win on the seventh day of racing at the Tour de Korea today.

Bonus seconds will see the 20-year-old enter the short 65km final stage in Seoul tomorrow with an eight second advantage from Patrick Bevin (Avanti Racing Team) who finished second to Ewan again today.

The stage two, three and five winner also holds the best young rider’s white jersey and green point’s jersey.

Ewan credited a textbook lead out and favourable finish for the comfortable victory in front of his parents, who surprised him with a trip to Korea to watch the final stages.

“Today we stuck together, the lead out was pretty perfect and the finish suited me out of a corner with 300m to go,” Ewan said. “We also got a bit of help from Drapac and Avanti which was good and that saved Leigh HowardMitch DockerAdam Blythe and I for the end."
