Robbie McEwen 2007

Robbie McEwen (Predictor) won the first sprint battle of the 2007 Giro d?Italia with an impressive acceleration to take the second stage from Tempio Pausania to Bosa in Sardinia on Sunday.

McEwen survived the hilly stage and final climb overlooking Bosa and then sat on the Milram lead out train in the final kilometres before easily powering past Alessandro Petacchi. World champion Paolo Bettini (Quick Step) was second and Petacchi was a disappointed third.
