Definitely no Vuelta for McEwen

Australian sprinter Robbie McEwen will definitely not be riding the Vuelta a España this year, Predictor-Lotto team manager Marc Sergeant announced Thursday. After a meeting on Wednesday night the sprinter and team agreed on the plan. "This is the last thing to be said on the matter, McEwen told us himself," Sergeant told Sporza.

"McEwen rode the Vuelta a España in 2006, because he wanted to win a stage in each of the three Grand Tours. But that went very badly, and we said, 'never again,'" Sergeant explained.
