Tour Down Under Final Stage Every Sprint

Every sprint!  Caleb Ewan (Orica-Scott) has won all four flat (or sprint) stages of this year's Tour Down Under!  In fact only two riders have won stages this year Ewan taking the flat ones and the winner of the Tour Richie Porte (BMC) taking to two hill top finishes  Both race with Australian licenses so it was a shut out for the hometown boys  Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) finished second for the third time  It was Marko Kump (UAE Abu Dhabi) who claimed the third step of the podium in Adelaide and Danny Van Poppel (Sky) just missed out on the prizes on the final stage of the 2017 Tour Down Under

This is the end of my coverage of this event  Be sure to check back during the Spring Classics and Monuments to see what I can capture with pen and brush as the 2017 season unfolds
