Caleb Ewan shapes up as one of the brightest – and fastest – prospects Australian cycling has seen for many years, and continues to rise to every challenge set by his Orica GreenEDGE team in his first season as a neo-pro.

Caleb’s success in 2015 comes as no surprise to those who know him, with the 21-year-old notching 11 professional wins including stage five victory in his maiden Grand Tour – the Vuelta a Espana and overall honours at the Tour of Korea.

Caleb’s tenacious attitude, grit when the going gets tough and nerves of steel in the finale, has seen him match it with the most decorated sprinters in the world including John Degenkolb, Peter Sagan, Marcel Kittel, Mark Cavendish, Alexander Kristoff and Andrea Guardini.

Already a road world championship silver medallist in 2012, Caleb’s rise to the top continued when he became the youngest ever winner of the Mitchelton Bay Classic series in Geelong in 2013. Caleb then spent two years racing in Europe with the Australian under-23 high performance team – the Jayco-AIS World Tour Academy.

Claiming eight wins in that time, Caleb’s talents were highly sought after on the world stage and he joined Australian outfit Orica-GreenEDGE in the latter half of 2014.
