Queenslander Robbie McEwen returns to Australia this week to prepare for his summer season down under and is a happy man, following the Brisbane Broncos winning the Australian National Rugby League Grand Final. As a VIP ticket holder, McEwen is a huge Broncos fan and was recently invited by the NRL to make a presentation to Darren Lockyer at the Dally M Awards but had to decline due to his commitment at the UCI World Road Championships.

McEwen, who will make his only velodrome appearance at the Sydney Thousand at Tempe Velodrome on Sunday October 29, will make a 'bee line' to Broncos Leagues Club on his arrival to congratulate Lockyer and his team.

The crack road sprinter, who resides on the Gold Coast when in Australia for three months each year, will take a week before commencing training for the Thousand at Tempe this month and the Cronulla Criterium on December 17.

Robbie will meet up with local St George identity Mike Tomalaris SBS Sports Presenter at the Tempe Velodrome, Mike is expected to be first to congratulate him on a win as he did on the Champs Ely sees in July after his 3rd sprint king victory.
