Caleb Ewan has returned ‘home’ for the 2024 UCI World Tour season after signing for Team Jayco-AlUla and will be a man on a mission.

Ewan has lived in the shadows of general classification riders Jai Hindley and Ben O’Connor over the last couple of seasons but will be out to make his mark in 2024.

The 29-year-old was viewed as one of the best sprinters in the pro peloton, winning five stages at the Tour de France, and he will be out to rediscover that form with the Australian team.

Here is all you need to know about Caleb Ewan.

Professional career so far

Following a successful start to his cycling career as a junior in Australia, Ewan turned professional in 2014 when he penned a deal with Australian team Orica-GreenEDGE.

Ewan spent four seasons with GreenEDGE and picked up his first professional wins at Herald Sun Tour in 2015, winning stages two and three.

Later that year Ewan was named in the GreenEDGE team for the Vuelta a Espana and went on to win stage five of the grand tour.

Ewan then had to wait until 2017 to win his next stage at a grand tour, when he took out stage 7 at the Giro d’Italia.

It was in 2019 that Ewan really sprung to prominence and now he was racing for Lotto-Soudal.

In the first grand tour of the year, the Giro d’Italia, Ewan won stages eight and 11, before carry that form into the big one, the Tour de France.

Ewan won stages 11, 16 and 21, to announce himself as one of the best sprinters in world cycling.

At the Tour de France in 2020, Ewan also won stages three and 11, to take his tally to five and appeared to have the world at his feet.

However, despite two stage wins at the 2021 Giro d’Italia, Ewan has not kicked on as much as he would have liked.

2022 and 2023 have been disappointing to say the least and he will be hoping the switch to Team Jayco-Alula will re-ignite his career.

What does the future hold?

Following a far from amicable departure from Lotto-Soudal at the end of the 2023 season, Ewan can now look forward.

Being back on an Australian team and among familiar faces will no doubt help, and Jayco-AlUla will be confident of getting him back to his best and winning stages again.

It will be interesting to see how the team utilise Ewan, as he is not the only world-class sprinter on the books.

Jayco-AlUla also have Dutch ace Dylan Groenewegen in their ranks and he will also be targeting stage wins at the big races. He also has five stage wins at the Tour de France.

However, the powers that be at the team have confirmed the duo will not go up against each other in races.

There are of course three grand tours, but it will be interesting to see if Ewan gets the nod to go to the Tour de France.

It will have already been discussed before Ewan agreed the move and reports claim both he and Groenewegen are happy with the planned schedule for 2024.
