The rider from Team Lotto-Soudal claims second stage win.
Caleb Ewan claimed a second Tour de France win on Wednesday in Poitiers. With an ultimate throw on the line Caleb was faster than Peter Sagan, Sam Bennett and Wout Van Aert in a bunch sprint. It is the 2nd stage win for the Australian and team Lotto Soudal after his stage win in Sisteron in stage 3.
Caleb Ewan: “It was such a crazy finish. I was in the front with 1.5km to go and dropped back because of the head wind. After my first stage win I knew I had to keep calm and wait for the right time and the gap to open. That happened quite late to the finish. I did a big throw on the line and didn’t know if I won. I had a real desire to win today. After yesterday I was disappointed and I am so happy to repay my teammates with the win.”
“I am super happy with my two stage wins. One just takes the pressure off. Then after the first one you always want a second. And now I for sure want a third victory, especially in Paris with the Champs-Élysées. So I hope to get through the mountains and get another chance in Paris.”
Caleb Ewan sprinted to victory atop on his Ridley bike equipped with Campagnolo Super Record EPS 12 Speed Disc Brake electronic groupset and with Campagnolo Bora One 50 Disc brake full carbon wheels.
