The Australian pocket rocket Caleb Ewan just can’t stop winning – even a tough uphill drag couldn’t blunt his acceleration.
Stage 4: Norwood to Campbelltown, 149.5km
When you’re on fire, you’re on fire!! Caleb Ewan (Orica-Scott) made it three sprint wins from three sprint stages. Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) left his burst out of the pack far too late to catch the Aussie speed machine, but did overhaul Sky’s Danny van Poppel for second. Richie Porte (BMC) goes into the Willunga Hill queen stage tomorrow holding a 20secs advantage over Gorka Izaguirre (Movistar). Esteban Chaves (Orica-Scott) is third, a further 2secs back. The contest for the leader’s jersey might be over bar the singing, but there are certainly podium places up for grabs.
I don’t know what it is at this race, but I LOVE the most combative rider podiums. There were double the smiles today with Cameron Meyer (UniSA-AUS) and Jack Bauer (Quick-Step Floors) sharing the space #joyous
