Tour Down Under rips up script before decisive stages in Adelaide hills – Analysis

The third stage of the Tour Down Under will start a new chapter of the race for overall victory, with the attacks, time gains and time losses of stage 2 ripping up the expected script for the final days of the race.

Michael Matthews (Jayco-Alula) was the big favorite for overall victory but his 2:13 time loss on stage 2, sparked by a brutal and cruel ripple in the peloton and some damage to his bike as they hit the decisive climb of the day , lead to the Australian admitting it was ‘game over’ for the GC.
