Lotto-Soudal Cycling Team (Belgium) - Press Release: Fourth stage success at the Giro for the 26-year-old Australian.
Caleb Ewan has won the fifth stage of the Giro d’Italia after a powerful sprint delivered him the victory in Cattolica. In the much anticipated bunch sprint, the 26-year-old Australian proved to be the fastest and beat Italians Nizzolo and Viviani. Exactly four years after his first, Caleb Ewan sprinted to his fourth ever Giro stage win.
“After the disappointment of missing out on the first sprint opportunity, this victory gives me great satisfaction”, Caleb Ewan said. “There was quite some pressure on myself and the team to get a good result today, so this win kind of feels like a relief. I wanted it so badly and to finish off the superb teamwork really is a great feeling. In my mission to win a stage in every Grand Tour this year, I can now tick off a stage at the Giro. But of course, I’m always hungry for more. This gives me and the whole team a confidence boost for the stages to come.”
