Mars Cycling Australia Road National Championships
Men's Road Race - Stage Details

Neo-pro Caleb Ewan has claimed the silver medal in his first elite Australian road race championship in a ride far beyond his years in Ballarat today.

At just 20-years of age, Ewan started the race in a support role for his ORICA-GreenEDGE teammates but as the race unfolded in his favour, switched to put in a spirited final lap in pursuit of the coveted national jersey.

Covering countless moves in the final stages, and even launching one himself at the top of the climb, Ewan was eventually edged out by Heinrich Haussler (IAM Cycling) for the victory.

“I gave it my all and I really tried to keep that little group together to the end to make sure it came down to a sprint,” Ewan said after the finish.
