"The whole day was quite nice until it started raining with one hour to go. The rain and cobbles on the finishing circuit made it a super nervous run-up to the final sprint. My team did a good job in keeping me close to the front. In the end I was a little bit far, but that was perfect since my competitors launched the sprint very early and I could come back in the final meters."
Caleb Ewan sprinted to victory atop on his Ridley Noah Fast Disc equipped with Campagnolo Super Record EPS 12 Speed Disc Brake groupset and Campagnolo Bora 50 Disc Brake wheels.
