Caleb Ewan (Orica-GreenEdge) went into today’s opening stage of the Santos Tour Down Under as the big favourite and with good reason: he’s the fastest sprinter in the field and he’s in terrific form. Ewan added to his early season successes with a compelling sprint victory in Lyndoch after his teammates controlled the race from start to finish.

Photographer Tim Bardsley-Smith was on hand to capture the action.
