'I don't know how to describe Roger Kluge, he's just weird'

2019 has been a year Australian sprinter Caleb Ewan will be able to look back on fondly.

After switching teams from Mitchelton-Scott to Lotto-Soudal, the 25-year-old went into his first ever participation in the Tour de France and came away with three stage wins. Including claiming victory on the Champs-Élysées on stage 21.

However, after a season of incessantly talking about racing, what went well and what went wrong, how the legs are feeling, it can be nice to take a moment in the off-season to find out a bit more about the person behind the rider.

Therefore, when we caught up Caleb Ewan at the recent Six Day London, we decided to delve a bit further, go a bit left field. What superpower would Ewan choose? And what does he think the world will be like in 2050?

Here are ten questions with Caleb Ewan.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races. I'm 6'0", 26 years old, have a strong hairline and have an adequate amount of savings for someone my age. I'm very single at the minute so if you know anyone, hit me up.


Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab, reporting about students evacuating their bowels on nightclub dancefloors and consecrating their love on lecture hall floors. I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).


I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
