Robbie McEwen (Predictor-Lotto) has decided to ride the Vuelta a Espana, meaning the Australian will start all three Grand Tours this year, having also contested May's Giro d'Italia and last month's Tour de France.

The Tour de France stage winner's main goal for the Vuelta will be to win a stage and if he does so, he will have won a stage in all three Grand Tours this year. Should McEwen be able to walk away with the first stage win, thus gaining the leader's golden jersey, his jersey cabinet will be complete after already wearing the Tour's yellow jersey and the Giro's pink jersey.

Belgian ProTour squad Predictor Lotto is yet to finalise its complete line up for the Vuelta.
