At 34 years old, Robbie McEwen only expects to ride three more years, but he is already planning what he will do when he climbs off his bike for good.
He is branching out in to the property development busines in his native Australia, according to The Courier Mail. "I realize as an athlete you have a certain lifespan and I don't want to get to the end of my career and say what do I do now," he noted.
The Predictor-Lotto rider said that he is using his fame and contacs to help establish himself. "You can use the networks and your profile to learn more. I get to meet many people and hear about a lof of things going on."
McEwen says he hoped to learn enough to move full-time into the deveopment business within the next few years.
