Caleb Ewan has withdrawn from the 2022 Giro d'Italia following the conclusion of stage 11, as the Australian now turns his attention to preparing for the Tour de France in July. 

Confirmed by his Lotto-Soudal team, Ewan always intended to pull out before the big mountain stages started to come thick and fast. Part of that plan also involved him picking up some wins, though, which ultimately never came to fruition, with the 27-year-old calling the race the 'Giro from hell'.
