It’s a wrap at the TDU with a Caleb Ewan double and a Simon Gerrans quad. Meanwhile over at the Tour de San Luis Superman Lopez took on a brace of Quintana‘s for the Queen Stage win. Perfect for a Sunday morning I’d say.
Stage 6, Santos Tour Down Under: 90km Adelaide to Adelaide
Last stage and last chance for a WorldTour win led to the usual high speed excitement on the streets of Adelaide. Red hot favourite Caleb Ewan (Orica-GreenEDGE) did not disappoint. The pocket rocket zoomed in for win number two from Mark Renshaw (Team Dimension Data) and Trek-Segafredo’s Giacomo Nizzolo. Simon Gerrans (Orica-GreenEDGE) took his fourth overall win by nine seconds from BMC’s Richie Porte and 11 seconds from Sergio Henao (Sky)
It’s been a heck of a race for the Aussie WorldTour team, four from six stages and the overall. #OGEROCKS indeed.
Look out for our race review!!
Stage 6, Tour de San Luis: 159km La Toma to Filo de la Sierra de Comechingones
Isn’t that just the best name for a stage finish? And by golly the racing on the Queen stage more than lived up to it. Miguel ‘Superman’ Lopez (Astana) sprinting for the summit finish win from a brace of Movistarlet Quintanas. Older brother Nairo finished second on the stage, but it was younger sibling Dayer who took the leaders jersey from Fortuneo Vital-Concept’s Eduardo Sepulveda. One stage to go and all to play for.
