He’s one of the brightest – and fastest – prospects Australian cycling has seen in many years.
Sprinter Caleb Ewan has a tenacious attitude, grit when the going gets tough and nerves of steel in a finale.
These qualities, coupled with his aerodynamic sprinting technique have propelled the 24-year-old to WorldTour distinction.
Despite his age, Caleb matches it with the most decorated sprinters on the planet including John Degenkolb, Peter Sagan, Marcel Kittel, Mark Cavendish, Alex Kristoff and Andrea Guardini.
He truly announced himself as one of the most exciting riders of his generation in 2017. Having already gained seven WorldTour victories by this point – he took out stage 7 of the Giro d’Italia and finished second in stage 1.
In 2016, Caleb notched up two stage victories at the Santos Tour Down Under, and achieved wins in the Herald Sun Tour, Tour of Britain and Cyclassic Hamburg. He also came close to another Grand Tour victory with a second place in stage 12 at the Giro d’Italia.
This year, he won his first European race of the season, the Clasica de Almeria before finishing a narrow second in the 294km Milan-Sanremo in March. He also showed great form at the Tour of California in May where he enjoyed four podium finishes from seven stages.
In his last race for Mitchelton-Scott, Caleb won the final stage of the 2018 Tour of Britain on 9 September.
After 14 laps of the 77km circuit taking in Regent Street, Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly Circus, Caleb timed his sprint perfectly, crossing the line ahead of André Greipel (Lotto Soudal) and Fernando Gaviria (Quick-Step Floors).
Now, Caleb looks ahead to taking his place within the Belgian outfit Lotto Soudal, having signed on for the 2019 and 2020 seasons.
The opportunity to be one of squad’s three leaders with Tim Wellens and Tiesj Benoot is an exciting one for the next stage of his career.
Arguably Bowral’s most successful sportsman (no small feat, with the country New South Wales town also producing Sir Donald Bradman), Caleb has enjoyed a meteoric rise to world cycling.
He discovered a passion for the sport at a young age with his older brother Josh.
Today, spending most of his year training in Monaco, Caleb hasn’t lost his kind and considerate nature that defined his junior years racing in Australia.
Success in his debut neo-pro season in 2015 included 11 professional wins. Among these, a stage five victory in his maiden Grand Tour – the Vuelta a España – and overall honours at the Tour of Korea.
With an almost unhealthy passion for coffee and a growing interest for fashion, don’t be surprised if you see Caleb parked at a café with mates dressed for the occasion!
