Team KATUSHA ALPECIN’s Jens Debusschere finished respectively fifth in the 164km Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race (UCI WorldTour) in Geelong, Australia.
Deceuninck-QuickStep’s Elia Viviani took the sprint victory ahead of Caleb Ewan (Lotto Soudal) and Daryl Impey (Mitchelton-Scott).
Jens Debusschere: “It was a really beautiful race here in Geelong, and a great style of finish, but frustratingly I was boxed in for the final sprint and I feel I could have had much more from today if I had the chance to sprint with an open line. It was a solid team effort and we are getting closer to the win.”
