Caleb Ewan (Lotto Soudal) emerged late to win a hectic, rain-soaked opening sprint at the Tour de Wallonie in Belgium on Sunday. The Australian came along the barriers to beat Irish road race champion Sam Bennett (Deceuninck-QuickStep) and Belgian road race champion Tim Merlier (Alpecin-Fenix).

"The whole day was quite nice until it started raining with one hour to go," Ewan said in a team press release. "The rain and cobbles on the finishing circuit made it a super nervous run-up to the final sprint. My team did a good job in keeping me close to the front. In the end, I was a little bit far, but that was perfect since my competitors launched the sprint very early and I could come back in the final metres."

Mark Cavendish (Bahrain McLaren) was also in the thick of the action until the final metres, but then slipped back and touched shoulders with other riders, losing position.

The opening stage of the Tour de Wallonie offered the men's field a 185 race from Soignies to Templeuve, and despite two second-category climbs inside the last 60km, the day was meant for the sprinters.

A five-man breakaway cleared the field early in the race to include Julien Duval (AG2R La Mondiale), Dries De Bondt (Alpecin-Fenix), Julien Van den Brande (Tarteletto-Isorex), Jens Reynders (Hagens Berman Axeon) and Tom Paquot (Wallonie-Bruxelles Development Team). The riders gained a maximum of five minutes.

The teams with strong sprinters took control and brought the gap down to two minutes. They passed over the two ascents and successfully closed the gap to the breakaway on the final circuits in Templeuve.

It started to rain as the peloton orbited the final circuits, but that didn't seem to affect the field. It was a straight and nontechnical sprint finish and so the sprint teams had plenty of opportunities to safely jostle for positioning. 

In the end, it was Ewan who took the win by a narrow margin ahead of Bennett and Merlier.

Ewan will wear the leader's jersey into stage 2's 172km race from Frasnes-Lez-Anvaing to Wavre.

"I want to defend the leader's jersey tomorrow and maybe even the day after tomorrow if I have good climbing legs. But the fourth stage will be too hard for me. With Philippe Gilbert we have someone in great form and he knows the local roads. So he will target the GC for team Lotto Soudal," Ewan said.
