The 2018 Tour Down Under faced its conclusion on Sunday with the now traditional down town Adelaide race circuit.
The peloton faced 90km of racing on the final day of the year’s first WorldTour race, with the sprinters likely to contest the finish and a chance for Caleb Ewan, Peter Sagan, Elia Viviani and André Greipel all to add to their stage victories at the race so far.

Daryl Impey led the race overall coming into the final stage, but sat on the exactly the same time as second place Richie Porte, who took victory on the queen stage of Old Willunga Hill on stage five.
With time bonuses on offer around the circuits of Adelaide, there could be a chance for Australian Porte to snatch a late victory from the South African leader if he was able to take some of those bonus seconds.
