Tour Down Under Final Stage There Is Work to Be Done

The final stage of the Tour Down Under was a relatively short circuit race through the downtown streets of Adelaide  The course feature a small climb that would figure two times in the King of the Mountains competition and two intermediate sprints that included bonus seconds for overall General Classification  The course was just a quick four and a half kilometers giving every rider a chance to become very familiar with every hill turn and bump in the road  With just one lap covered Gianluca Brambilla (Quickstep) and Thomas De Gendt (Lotto Soudal) went off the front  De Gendt may have been staying off the front until the tenth lap to pick up maximum KOM points to win the Polka Dot Jersey outright but that is a pick task

I apologize the punctuation gremlins have return to my computer leaving me with not periods commas or colons unless I use the follow cut and paste section
