Caleb Ewan (Lotto Soudal) is back riding his bike on the road after the high speed Tour de France crash that left him with a displaced complex fracture of the right collarbone. 

The injury that occurred as Ewan was sprinting toward the line on stage 3 abruptly brought an end to his plan of winning a stage at every single Grand Tour in 2021. The 27 year old had ticked off the first part of the challenge, delivering two stage victories at the Giro d’Italia before leaving mid-way through stage 8 with a knee injury. The Australian then confirmed his status as the sprinter to beat at the Tour de France when he returned to racing at the Baloise Belgium Tour and won two stages.
