Caleb Ewan sprints to victory in Down Under Classic
The rider from Team Lotto-Soudal took the first Campagnolo win.
Caleb Ewan took the victory in the Down Under Classic, a one-hour criterium held in the streets of Adelaide which traditionally precedes the Tour Down Under. In a finale marred by various crashes, Roger Kluge managed to keep Caleb Ewan at the front and delivered an impressive lead-out. At 200 metres from the line, Ewan launched a powerful sprint and held off Peter Sagan and Alexander Edmondson. After earlier victories in both 2016 and 2017, it’s now the third Down Under Classic victory for the pocket-rocket sprinter.
