Going by that interview he may not get the chance to sprint, especially being a teamate of Cantwell but lets hope he does and we can watch him with interest at Portarlington which is the toughest of the 3 days.

Great summer weather for the 3 days of Bay Crits, with the really warm weather arriving for the final day and the first day of the Sun Tour.
I would say he is more a sprinter. The speed he has in the sprints at this young age would indicate that he should pursue that.

ACF, no doubt you are right at this stage and I think he will start his career as a sprinter but I just have this feeling about him. Any moves to a more Cadel type rider wouldn't happen for a number of years. Will have to reflect on this in about 8-10 years time, can you remind me in 2020 to review :-)

Beautiful day for the first of the Bay Crits. Work for me today, so will have to rely on SBS highlights tonight.

Robbie keeps cleaning up. Wonder if he had bike cam going again?

Well done to Caleb Ewan, lets see how he goes on the tougher Portarlington circuit.

Glad that Caleb Ewan confirmed himself this year as well.
What a promising kid!

I think he'll be a sprinter who can get over a hill. The Oscar Freire type !
