Lotto-Soudal Cycling Team (Italy) - Press Release: The 26-year-old Australian takes his second stage win at this year's Giro.
Two days after his stage win in Cattolica, Lotto Soudal rider Caleb Ewan was again victorious in the Giro d’Italia. After a technical final in Termoli and impressive lead-out work of Jasper De Buyst, Ewan sprinted to his second stage victory in this Giro. This brings Ewan’s tally to eleven Grand Tour stage victories.
“The run-up to the sprint was really hectic and it felt like the sprint already started from the bottom of the short ramp in the penultimate kilometre”, says Caleb Ewan. “So, it really was crucial to be up there right at the front. Because if you have to hit the brakes on that climb, it takes so much energy out of you to accelerate again. So, I asked my teammates to bring me into a good position at the bottom of the steep ramp. But they did so much more. Not only did they bring me to the front just perfectly, Jasper De Buyst was really impressive. He made sure I could save a lot of valuable energy I’d need for my final sprint. So I am very happy that I was able to finish the job. This kind of finishes suits me perfectly because of my size.”
