McEwen cruises

By John Trevorrow in Revel

After the finish, Robbie McEwen said it have been, "a rough day - hot and up and down all day. Luckily once the break went it was pretty cruisy all day. I tried to follow Stuey and Thor on the last climb but I just couldn't hold 'em. The bunch went full gas up the last climb and the race just split all over the joint. The classification guys were going just flat stick up that last climb and it was too much for us sprinters."

McEwen was also pleased for his compatriot. "I hear young Simon got third. What a great ride. It was a tough day to be out there in the third week of the Tour de France."
