The rider from team Lotto-Soudal conquests his second stage victory.
Caleb Ewan took his second stage victory at the Tour de France today. In a much-anticipated bunch sprint, the fast Australian launched an impressive acceleration to take the win in Nîmes! The Italian Viviani and the Dutchman Groenewegen finished second and third, respectively. Tim Wellens received his fourteenth polka dot jersey.
In tropical weather conditions, the riders took off in Nîmes for the final week of racing at the Tour de France. Almost immediately after the start Bak, Gougeard, Ourselin, Rossetto and Wisniowski attacked to form today’s breakaway. The sprint teams immediately took control, but although the quintet was never granted much advantage, the escapees were only caught at a few kilometres from the line. At fifteen kilometres from the finish the pace was seriously increased. The sprinters were put to the test but they held on and a bunch sprint would take place in Nîmes. It was Caleb Ewan, atop on his Ridley equipped with the fastest Campagnolo Super Record EPS 12S electronic groupset and with Campagnolo Bora Ultra 50 full carbon wheels, who launched an impressive sprint and took an outstanding second stage victory at the Tour de France!
In his first ever Tour, Ewan already gathered six podium spots, two of them victories.
