Logan Owen’s World Tour debut with his new team EF Education First was yesterday at the Tour Down Under. Logan will be sending in some brief posts about the race here. This is the first installment following yesterday’s Stage 1:

Overall it was a pretty chill day. The stage profile was such that it was more than likely going to end in a bunch sprint. A breakaway went very early on the stage and we had Will (Clarke) in it. Will was the last of the breakaway to stay away and was able to win the most aggressive rider of the day as a result. He also was second on the stage’s only KOM.

 

For the finale we just looked out for our GC guys and kept them safe and in position. All in all it was a good day and we were able to accomplish what we needed to on the stage. Stage 2 is going to be tougher. It has a hard finish circuit with constant short climbs on it and a drag that goes up to the final sprint. Anticipate a select uphill group sprint.

 

Thanks for reading.

 

– Logan
