Unheralded man in Green

July 7th, 2006 · No Comments · Cycling, Tour de France

He is Australian, and he often wears green, but many people in sporting mad Australia don’t know of him.

Robbie McEwen is currently setting the Tour de France on fire, winning his second stage and leading in the Green Jersey running for the best sprinter.

The sport of cycling usually only makes the news at Olympic or Commonwealth Games times, and occasionally during the Tour de France. However, another ‘minor’ Australian sport, soccer, is still capturing news space with the World Cup nearing its finale.

If he can keep on winning, maybe he can get the recognition that he deserves and become a household name for his achievements in his long career at the top of cycling.
