Australia's most successful Tour de France rider, Robbie McEwen, will roll into Sydney next Tuesday, January 25 to meet local cyclists, triathletes and Paralympians in Parramatta Park at 10 am. The newly achieved Australian champion is currently contesting the Jacob's Creek Tour Down Under.

In the PR exercise a couple days before returning to his home base in Belgium, McEwen will meet with Parramatta cyclists and triathletes along with Paralympics 4000 metres gold medallist Peter Brooks and Kate Bates, winner of 3 gold medals at last week's World Cup track meeting in Manchester, both from Parramatta. With local riders, McEwen will ride a lap of Parramatta Park and then partner Brooks on a tandem and ride to Blackman Cycles on the corner of Victoria Rd and Church St., where he will give a press interview on this year's Tour de France and his team.
