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-SCOTT team.

Arguably Bowral’s most successful sportsman (no small feat, with the country NSW town giving birth to Sir Donald Bradman), Caleb has seen a meteoric rise in the world of cycling. Growing up in Bowral and Moss Vale, Caleb found a love for cycling at young age with his older brother Josh. Today, spending most of his year training on the streets of Monaco, he hasn’t lost his kind and considerate nature that defined his junior years racing in Australia. With an almost unhealthy passion for coffee and growing interest fashion, don’t be surprised if you see Caleb parked up at café with mates (and dressed up for the occasion). It is his incredible speed on the bike, however, that has gained much deserved attention across the professional cycling world.

Caleb’s success in 2015, his debut neo-pro season, came 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.

In 2016, Caleb continued his impressive progression on the world stage, taking two stage victories at the Tour Down Under, and achieving wins in the Herald Sun Tour, Tour of Britain and Cyclassic Hamburg. He also came close to gaining another Grand Tour victory with a 2nd place in stage 12 at the Giro d’Italia.    

In his 2017 season, Caleb has raised the bar once again. Having already gained 7 World Tour victories – including his second Grand Tour victory in stage 7 of the Giro d’Italia – Caleb proves once again he is one of the most exciting sprinters of his generation.

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, Alex Kristoff and Andrea Guardini.

Known for his trademark low sprinting profile, it’s impossible to not enjoy watching this young man race. Caleb’s undeniable resilience and determination fuels his relentless pursuit for success and defines his fighting character. It is with this maturity beyond his years that Caleb carries with him in his journey to become one of the world’s fastest men. We cannot wait to see where this road will lead him next.
