Caleb Ewan came to the Giro d'Italia to win a stage, and the Lotto Soudal rider does not want to go home without one. Ewan intends to leave the race this week before the high mountain stages so he can refocus on the Tour de France as early as Wednesday.

"I don't know the exact stage that I will stop yet," Ewan said in a virtual press conference during the Giro d'Italia rest day on Monday. "It will be somewhere between stage 11 and 13. I won't go past [stage] 13 because it will get too hard for me then. And obviously, I have to keep the Tour in mind as well. If I'm feeling good, I'll go until 13 and if I'm not feeling great, then I'll probably do the sprint on 11 and then stop."
