Tour Down Under Stage 3: Claiming Another

Although it was the sponsor of Peter Sagan's team Hansgrohe, who sponsored the third stage of the Tour Down Under, it was the wee but fierce Caleb Ewan (Orica-Scott) who raised his arms in victory at the line.  Sagan looked to have the sprint in hand but then got boxed out of the best line, although the World Champion did hold on for second on the stage.  Ewan added to his point total in the Sprint competition securing the Red Jersey outright (off of the shoulders of Richie Porte - BMC).  Rounding out the top three was the sprinter from another new Pro Tour team, Niccolo Bonifazio riding for Bahrain-Merida.  So Ewan has now won two of the three stages of the 2017 Tour Down Under.
