Lotto-Dstny CEO Stephane Heulot has confirmed that Caleb Ewan is free to leave the team before his contract expires at the end of 2024. Relations between the Australian and his team have been strained since he abandoned the Tour de France last month.

Speaking to Het Nieuwsblad, Heulot said that his team was prepared to part company with Ewan if he wished to leave. Ewan, who has not raced since the Tour, missed the BEMER Cyclassics last weekend and he is also absent from this week’s Deutschland Tour as he awaits the birth of his third child.
