Tour de Pologne
Stage 1: Warszawa to Warszawa - Stage Details

21-year-old neo-pro Caleb Ewan has finished a narrow second place to Marcel Kittel (Giant-Alpecin) on the opening stage of the Tour de Pologne in Warszawa.

Ewan, supported all day and particularly in the final ten kilometres by his ORICA-GreenEDGE teammates, hit the front from Kittel’s wheel around the final bend before the German recovered to win by half a wheel.

“Everyone knew that the first one through that final corner was most likely going to win,” sport director Matt Wilson said. “In the end it didn’t quite work out that way, but unfortunately there is probably only one guy in the world that could pass him at that point in time and that was Kittel.”
