Tour of Norway
Stage 1: Arnes to Sarpsborg - Stage Details

Two-time Tour de Langkawi stage winner Caleb Ewan has sprinted to second place on the opening stage of the Tour of Norway today.

The 20-year-old neo-pro was pipped across the line by Alexander Kristoff (Team Katusha) after a frantic final chase that saw the day’s breakaway shut down with just 200metres to spare.

“Kristoff would be arguably the best guy in the world right now in a sprint like today,” sport director Matt Wilson said. “The finish was quite deceptive on television; it was quite a difficult uphill sprint.”
