The 2017 Tour Down Under continued on Wednesday, January 18, with stage two from Stirling to Paracombe.

The final climb on Torrens Hill Road provided the day’s fireworks, with Richie Porte (BMC Racing) stamping his authority on the race by attacking his main rivals.

Porte’s decisive move with two kilometres to go caused devastation behind, and the bunch shattered and several notable riders lost valuable time.

Spaniard Gorka Izaguirre (Movistar) and Colombian Esteban Chaves (Orica-Scott) were the best of the rest, coming home in second and third at 16 seconds.

Team Sky’s hopes of decent placing were put into difficulty as GC hope Sergio Henao endured a mechanical with 30km to go, forcing the British team to chase hard to catch back up with the front group. Henao finished the stage in 13th spot, 19 seconds down on Porte.

Porte’s win means that he relieves stage one winner Caleb Ewan (Orica-Scott) of the overall lead.

Thanks to time bonuses on the line, Porte sits 20 seconds ahead of Izaguirre and 22 ahead of Chaves overall.

The 2017 Tour Down Under continues on Thursday with stage three from Glenelg to Victor Harbor, and concludes on Sunday, January 22.
