McEwen predicts mass sprint unlikely for World's road race

Robbie McEwen has stated that it's unlikely the road race will end in a mass sprint on Sunday, however he still remains ambitious about his chances. "I've spoken to Boonen and we will assume that the climbers may be tired from the Vuelta, this is good for guys like us." McEwen also explained that has worked hard to remain sharp for Sunday's race by getting in some intensive training behind the motorbike, "I don't want to go to the world championships just for the sake of going, I want to be competitive," remarked McEwen.
