Caleb Ewan Wins 2016 Mitchelton Bay Cycling Classic

From Williamstown, Victoria where four days of racing has just concluded, Caleb Ewan of Orica-GreenEdge has taken line honours and the overall General Classification win at the 2016 Mitchelton Bay Cycling Classic.

After some tough racing on the criterium style courses that started New Years Day, Ewan out-sprinted the field on three of the four stages after some early breaks were pulled back on stage 1 and 2.

The field was reduced with 20 Elite Men finishers on each stage and sprint points were awarded to a number of individuals over the course of the race.

Carrying good form into stage 4, Ewan was able to beat the previous days stage winner Patrick Shaw of Avanti IsoWhey Sports and Brenton Jones of Drapac Professional Cycling across the line, both of whom were closely contesting the General Classification ranking of the race.

Robbie Hucker (Avanti IsoWhey) was the overall winner of the Sprint Ace Competition after he won a number of sprint points on all 4 stages.
