Tour Down Under Final Stage Young Legs

Jhonatan Restrepo (Katusha) should wisdom beyond his years ahead of the second intermediate sprint today  With a small group up the road he knew that all of the bonus seconds would go to them and not to his close rivals on the GC so he and a teammate sprinted across the gap to join the escapees  He arrived in time to contest the sprint (which he won) ahead of Johannes Frohlinger (Team Sunweb)  The effort moved him up to tenth overall and ensured that he would claim the White Jersey of best young rider in the 2017 Tour Down Under  Francois Bidard (Ag2r La Mondiale) just watched the pair go (although he got third in the sprint) he was far more interested in making the break away stick  I should note that Restrepo sat up immediately after the sprint and rejoined the peloton - his goal achieved!
