After a day for the GC riders yesterday, the Tour Down Under turned its attention to the sprinters again today.
After a tough stage where the break dominated, the sprinters stepped up in the finale. Slowed by a crash in the final few kilometres, the UCI World Champion, Peter Sagan, took second, narrowly missing the win after a strong final push.
The UCI World Champion skillfully avoided the crash, but was slowed in his ride to the finish line coming second behind Caleb Ewan.
Ewan out sprinted Sagan and Niccolo Bonifazio to win his second stage at the 2017 Santos Tour Down Under.
Caleb Ewan had work to do on the final run into Victor Harbor, in the closing hundred metres he came from the back to outsprint Sagan, who lead out the initial sprint. A crash was inevitable and Gorka Izagirre went down pretty hard after a touch of wheels.
Race Leader Richie Porte finished safely in the bunch with his BMC team mates.

Quintana will thus aim for the Giro-Tour double for the first time in his career.
The Colombian will not defend his 2016 La Vuelta a España title.

The Tour Down Under was presented with its first summit finish on stage 2.
After the team picked up time bonuses throughout the day, Jay McCarthy held onto his fourth spot in the GC, looking ahead to the hard riding on the days to come. Sponsored by hansgrohe, the profile of stage 3 will see fireworks as the race for the GC hots up. With some of the most challenging terrain of the race, there’s barely a moment of flat road between the start in Glenelg and the finish in Victor Harbor.
The short, sharp kicks of the finishing circuit, ridden four times, could encourage late attacks and a GC shake up!
