Robbie McEwen returned home to Australia last weekend after his most successful European campaign, including sprint victories in the Giro d'Italia and the Tour De France, Paris-Bruxelles and then an unlucky 5th in the world road championships in Salzburg, Austria.

McEwen was a late entry for the Jayco Herald Sun Tour but he is hoping to win Sunday's final stage around the streets of Carlton in Melbourne. After the tour, Robbie will then return his Mermaid Beach home on the Gold Coast to prepare for the Noosa Criterium on October 28, followed the next day by his only velodrome appearance in the Sydney Thousand at Canterbury's Tempe velodrome. The sprinter then has criterium commitments in Geelong, Cronulla and South Australia, winding up with the Tour Down Under in January.
