Tour of Britain
Stage 6: Newmarket to Aldeburgh - Stage Details

23-year-old Caleb Ewan had claimed an impressive third stage victory at the OVO Tour of Britain with a convincing sprint on today’s stage six.

ORICA-SCOTT worked for the majority of the stage, leading the peloton to control the distance to a breakaway of seven riders that escaped in the early stages of the 186kilometre stage.

In the final, lead-out duo Roger Kluge and Luka Mezgec worked to get the young Australian into a good position and after the final corner, Ewan launched from out of the wheels, established a gap and held on until the line for the victory.

“It was another pretty tough day again, not really straight forward as the weather was pretty bad all day,” Ewan said. “The team rode so well, we stayed up near the front out of trouble all day and the guys again did a prefect job at the end.”
