Caleb Ewan (Orica-Scott) took his fourth stage win of the 2017 Tour Down Under as Richie Porte (BMC Racing) secured overall victory in Adelaide.

Ewan had dominated the sprints throughout the race, and so it proved once again on the the final stage of the race, coming into the final 250 metres in a perfect position, and holding off two-time world champion Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) to win the stage by half a bike length.

The 90km criterium around the city centre of Adelaide provided intriguing racing as podium places changed hands with Jay McCarthy (Bora-Hansgrohe) picking up bonus seconds at an intermediate sprint to move leapfrog Nathan Haas (Dimension Data) into third place overall.

There was also success for Thomas De Gendt (Lotto-Soudal) who was ever-present in the various breakaways, picking up enough mountain points to take that classification ahead of Porte.

However, the day as a whole belonged to Porte and Ewan, as the two Australian riders completed their dominance of the 2017 Tour Down Under.
