McEwen not ruling out green jersey

Robbie McEwen knows that it’s going to be a tough task to win a third green jersey this year. He’s currently 22 points behind maillot vert leader Thor Hushovd and eight adrift of Stuart O’Grady. Still, never say never. When asked by Belgian TV1 if he was thinking about the green jersey immediately after taking his third stage win on Friday, he had this to say:

"After a win like the other day I don't really think about anything; but it's true, there's 6 stages left still - 5 without the time trial. So anything can happen really, but I'm not counting on it!"
