Holmes Matthew- the surprise winner of the Santos Tour Down Under's last stage

It was like many times before, Richie Port (Trek Segafredo) accelerated on the famous Willunga Hill and dropped everybody from his wheel. This time he had to get back to the riders in the break away too and some guys were doing really well there. Port got back to the guys like Manuele Boara (Astana Pro Team), Michael Storer (Team Sunweb), Bruno Armirail (Groupama FDJ) and Holmes Matthew (Lotto Soudal) inside the last kilometer and kept going dropping the early rescapees one by one exept the Britt, who counter attacked inside the last 150m and won the stage.

Port could still celebrate as he won the Santos Tour Down Under 2020 general classification ahead of Diego Ulissi (UAE Team Emirates).

Martin Laas (Bora Hansgrohe) finished today 99th and was 110th in the GC.
