McEwen to greener pastures?

After losing Belgian champion Serge Baguet, it looks like Davitamon-Lotto could see their kangaroo sprinter Robbie McEwen hop to other pastures. "Not everyone is seeing my true value" said McEwen to Gazet Van Antwerpen. "I miss their enthusiasm in the current ongoing negotiations. They play hard-ball."

Although McEwen's wishes have always had a big impact on the team's line-up, it is believed that he now wants to see his value tag equalled to the other sprinters, Boonen and Petacchi. "I win in January, February, April, May, June, July, August, September and October. In March I'm usually sick. But who equals my results? I'm one of the three quickest sprinters. To keep someone like me, I would consider a smart deed," he said, convinced of his worth.
