RETURN OF THE KING: IMPEY WINS CORKSCREW FOR MITCHELTON-SCOTT
South African road race champion Daryl Impey (Mitchelton-SCOTT) has won a brutal sprint to the finish against GC rival Patrick Bevin (CCC Team) after a group of 20 riders descended from Corkscrew Road on 100% Stage 4.
The Corkscrew’s return to the race after a one-year hiatus heralded expectation of a day to break apart the Santos General Classification – and break it did, but not in the way many expected.
The field competing for Ochre has narrowed to, likely, three candidates, with Bevin and Impey separated by seven seconds. While Richie Porte (Trek-Segafredo) is out of the top 10, he is expected to win the final stage atop Willunga Hill.
