2016 Australian criterium champion Caleb Ewan has claimed thePeople?s Choice Classic at the Santos Tour Down Under.
Ewan launched off the wheel of ORICA-GreenEDGE teammate?Daryl Impey and found an opening to burst ahead of Giacomo Nizzolo (Trek?Segafredo) and Adam Blythe (Tinkoff) for the first honours in Adelaide.
The win takes the 2015 Vuelta a Espana stage winner to six victories in 2016 after his success at the Mitchelton Bay Cycling Classic and the Australian road championships earlier this month.
?I felt really good coming into this race,? the 21-year-old said after the victory. ?I?ve had some good races leading up to this and I think I should be peaking pretty well this week.?
