Farewell Robbie – 17 Years In Photos
12 Tour de France stage wins, 12 Giro d’Italia and 12 Tour Down Under stage wins, 3 green jerseys, 2 Australian Road Championship titles, and the list goes on. Depending how you count them, Robbie McEwen has around 120 wins in his 17 year professional career. If you look at this wikipedia page, his list of palmares is outstanding. Thanks for all the memories Robbie. You did Australia proud!
I was looking through some old photos of Robbie’s career and it brought back some of the exciting moments he’s given us. Seventeen years is a long time when you think about it and it’s amazing that he’s been at it this long. Robbie McEwen is one of the last of his generation and without his achievements Australian cycling may not see the level of success we’re enjoying now.
If you’re new to the sport, here’s a glimpse at a selection of photos throughout Robbie’s career to show you where he’s come from, and where’s he’s finished. I also encourage you to watch SBS’s tribute to Robbie (video) here.
