Greipel Captures His 100th Pro Win

Today’s 90 kilometer long sixth and final stage of Tour Down Under in the streets of Adelaide was decided in another bunch sprint where André Greipel (Lotto-Belisol) nailed his 100th professional victory after a tight sprint with Mark Renshaw.

Team Saxo-Tinkoff worked hard in front of the field throughout the day but had a rather unfortunate finale:

”The team worked hard in front of the field today to create the best conditions for Johnny in the bunch sprint but unfortunately, he crashed in a bend with 9 kilometers to go and with the pace the field was doing at the time there was no coming back to the front. Luckily, he was only bruised a bit but of course, we’re sorry to see the opportunity of another podium ceremony go to waste,” said Team Saxo-Tinkoff’s Fabrizio Guidi after the final stage of Tour Down Under.

Tom Slagter (Blanco) was brought safely across the finish line and took his first stage race win of his career.
