A special day at the Tour Down Under. Richie Porte makes it six Willunga Hill victories on the trot. Daryl Impey becomes the first rider to claim the ochre jersey back to back, and the cycling world says goodbye to one of their very best.
It was a stage of action and drama at Tour Down Under. The GC leaders battled for bonus seconds. A first WorldTour victory went to Jasper Philipsen after Caleb Ewan was relegated for head butting. Race leader Patrick Bevin was involved in a crash and had to chase to get back with the peloton.
Mitchelton-Scott’s Daryl Impey showed exactly why he’s the defending champion when he swooped into Campbelltown to claim victory and the 10 second bonification.
