If the GC is not a foregone matter the race will be extra thrilling thanks to the time bonuses. But if it is, it’s merely a case of not crashing before the sprinters duke it out on the slightly downhill finish.
Start and finish of the last stage are on King William Street, while Montefiore Hill is the only elevation. Not much though, the average gradient of the short hill is 2.53%.
André Greipel (2013, 2014), Wouter Wippert (2015) and Caleb Ewan (2016, 2017) took the flowers in last five editions, so it’s a safe bet to expect a bunch sprint.
Two intermediate sprints (at kilometre 36 and at kilometre 54) come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds, while the first three riders on the line take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
Stage 6 of the 2018 Tour Down Under starts at 1:30 PM and the expected finish is at 3:30 PM – both are local times.
