Ewan beats Nizzolo in People’s Choice Classic

Caleb Ewan (Orica-GreenEDGE) confirmed his status as the emerging sprint star and the dominant sprinter of the Australian summer by taking a dominant sprint victory in the People’s Choice Classic, the criterium that is held two days before the start of the Tour Down Under. In the expected bunch kick, IAM dominated proceedings but as their sprinter Matteo Pelucchi run out of power, it was Giacomo Nizzolo (Trek) who launched a long sprint before being passed by the unstoppable Ewan who claimed his fifth win in just seven days of racing.
