Caleb Ewan doubles up in stage 4 of Belgium Tour

Caleb Ewan took his second win in two days at the Belgium Tour after he won the reduced bunch sprint to take stage 4 in Hamoir after also winning stage 3 on Friday.

Bryan Coquard (B&B Hotels) finished second, while Davide Ballerini (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) took third.

“It was a pretty tough race all day,” explained Ewan at the finish. “They say this was the hardest stage of the Tour. So, I was not really expecting to be there in the final, and got a little bit gapped on the last climb.

“My team did a great job, waiting for me, and bringing me back to the front of the bunch, and we still had Philippe [Gilbert] and Jasper [De Buyst].

“We heard on the radio that they [Deceuninck-QuickStep] were riding full gas [on the final climb], and I knew that they wouldn’t want me to get back on. But I kept fighting with my teammates and they did a superb job waiting for me and bringing me back, and then also doing the lead-out afterwards.”
