In the second part of our interview with the Davitamon Lotto sprint star, Robbie McEwen tells Anthony Tan about his expectations and ambitions leading up to the world's biggest bike race, and the struggles he's had with the now very heavily-contested points competition - as well as a few thoughts on the departure of Lance Armstrong.
