Logan talking with some fans prior to stage 2 of Tour Down Under

 

Logan Owen is making his World Tour debut this week with his new team EF Education First at The Tour Down Under. Logan will be sending in some brief posts about the race here. This is the second installment following yesterday’s Stage 2:

 

The profile for today was tough from start to finish. Plus it was really hot – 38 degrees C. The break went almost immediately again and Will (Clarke) made it into the move again. Will was able to win both sprint points out on the road which also gave him six bonus seconds. 

 

I looked after the GC guys again today. In the finale, I helped to get everyone into position at the base of the final climb up to Sterling. From that point I just rolled into the finish with one of the Bora guys. Overall my legs were good until it got really hot on the circuits – it definitely felt hard those first few times up the climb on the circuit. 

 

Time now to cool off and recover.

 

Thanks for reading.
