Tour Down Under Stage 5 Slipping Off the Front

On the first ascent of Willunga Hill attacks starting jumping out of the peloton  The first to give it a go was Chris Hamilton (Sunweb) with Giovanni Visconti (Bahrain-Merida) trying to catch the youngster from Austalia  Up the road the now three member break was clearing the top of the climb with Thomas De Gendt (Lotto Soudal) mobbing up the KOM points (his sole objective of getting into the early break)  This trip was a rehearsal for the show that would be the final ascent to the finish line at the top in twenty kilometers  The winner on that stage has a high likelihood of being the victor of the Tour Down Under and the King of the Mountains
