KOM Corner:

Bahrain Victorious’ Phil Bauhaus bested Caleb Ewan and GC second place Michael Matthews in an exciting bunch sprint finish to end stage 1.  Bauhaus peaked at just over 74 kph (46mph) during the final push that brought him the win of the first Tour Down Under stage in 3 years.  The American Magnus Sheffield dropped to 3rd in the GC, but is only 8 seconds behind.

Despite summiting Menglers Hill 4 times, only the second and fourth counted towards KOM points. AG2R’s Nans Peters won the first of those classified laps, then Alessandro Covi first to the top on the 4th lap. However, Australian Lucas Plapp was second on both climbs, earning 2 points for each and the green polka dot jersey.

Official summary of the TDU Stage 1:

Tanunda – in South Australia’s beautiful Barossa region – will host both the start and finish of Ziptrak® stage one.

At nearly 150 kilometres of racing it’s the second-longest stage in the 2023 Santos Tour Down Under and a chance for sprinters to shine.

Nuriootpa, Angaston, Bethany and Greenock will all welcome the peloton. A section of this stage also appeared in the 2021 Santos Festival of Cycling men’s race, where Luke Durbridge took victory with an 80-kilometre solo break on day one.

Fans are invited to settle in for the spectacle – come and spend a day in world-famous wine country. TDU.com/Stage 1
