Elia Viviani wins Cadel Evans Road Race over Ewan
GEELONG, Australia (AP) — Italy's Elia Viviani won the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Cycle Race on Sunday, edging Australian Caleb Ewan in a sprint finish.
Viviani was runner-up in the race last year to Australia's Jay McCarthy but was able to go one better this season with help from his powerful Belgium-based team Decuninck-Quick Step.
While Viviani went on to record 18 wins in an extraordinary 2018 season, his second placing in the Cadel Evans race was an irritation.
