Greipel wins Tour Down Under stage 1

The rider from Team Lotto-Soudal conquested the first WorldTour race of the year.

André Greipel has won the first stage at Tour Down Under, the first WorldTour race of the year. It’s his seventeenth stage win in Australia. The stage between Port Adelaide and Lyndoch was a traditional sprint stage. After two kilometres three riders escaped the bunch and they got a maximum advantage of five minutes. The sprint teams controlled the gap. William Clarke managed to stay in front until eight kilometres to go. Jens Debusschere then dropped off André Greipel perfectly for the sprint.

The German rode an impressive sprint, beating Caleb Ewan and world champion Peter Sagan.
