Travis McCabe (Holowesko-Citadel) scored another major win for the development squad and another for the young riders of the race, beating Kiel Reijnen (Trek-Segafredo) and Sebastian Lucas Haedo (Jamis).
“We just waited patiently,” said McCabe. “It was a pretty hectic finish coming into the final at 70-kilometers an hour, and it was a pretty choppy wind. It was pretty much a patience game. I stayed in good position, but not too [far] forward.”
The stage win gives McCabe the lead in the points competition, taking the jersey from Reijnen.
“I did not get the stage win, lost the points jersey and the fan favorite all to one guy. What are you gonna do?” joked Reijnen.
However, the time bonus on the line moves Reijnen into the top-ten overall. Race leader Lachlan Morton (Jelly Belly) retained his overall lead.
