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.Wilba60 said:I have been spruiking Ewan since watching him last year at the Bay Crits. I can't recall who it was but an ex rider commentating on SBS said that he could climb "all day" when being asked about him. He may well turn out to be the next Cadel rather than McEwan.
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.
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 reviewauscyclefan94 said:I would say he is more a sprinter.

I think he'll be a sprinter who can get over a hill. The Oscar Freire type !Wilba60 said: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.

Yeah. he's a huge talent on the road or the track. Whether he's climbing, riding track enduro or sprints, he has it all.Michele said:Glad that Caleb Ewan confirmed himself this year as well.
What a promising kid!
Being a first year U23 they could sign him but I think he's going to spend a year with the feeder team (Jayco-AIS) first. He was riding a Scott yesterdayWilba60 said:Didn't realize that Ewan's coach is Brad McGee. Wonder if he will direct Ewan to Orica GreenEdge? Would be a real pity if the Aussie OGE team misses out on him. Can anyone help with the qualification rules re. age on world tour teams, is Ewan too young yet to be signed? Matt Goss may not want him at OGE, he looks to be quicker than Docker, Howard and Kroupis....not sure how he would go against a fit and ready to ride Goss.
OGE must be looking at replacing Julian Dean who has retired. If Ewan is too young, any ideas on who they might sign?
Jayco AIS has ceased to exist. The whole AIS programme has been revamped and it should be national team like (as they did with Eclipse's Jayco Honey Shotz team in Singkarak and other Asian races this year) and will not be a full fledged continental team.woodie said:Being a first year U23 they could sign him but I think he's going to spend a year with the feeder team (Jayco-AIS) first.

Correct.Ferminal said:Ewan will surely be one of those racing out of Varese though?
I apparently failed to insert a link here is the video: http://www.sbs.com.au/cyclingcentral/video/13481027971/mitchelton-bay-cycling-classic-stage-1Ruudz0r said:Video of stage 1 of the Bay Cycling Classic. Mens race starts a bit before the 15 minute mark.
