    On the final day of competition at the UCI Road World Championships in Valkenburg, the Netherlands, Caleb Ewan sprinted home for silver in the junior men's road race. In the 129 kilometre race 17-year-old Ewan from the New South Wales Southern Highlands narrowly missed reeling in victor Matej Mohoric. The Slovenian rider won in a time of 3:00:45 after an audacious solo escape in the final kilometre.

    Ewan crossed the line in the same time at the head of the bunch sprint for second, with Croatian Josip Rumac close behind in third place.

    175 riders had lined up for eight laps of the 16.1 kilometre circuit including Ewan's team mates, Brad LInfield, Robert-Jon McCarthy and Nick Schultz, who went in with a clear strategy to protect him throughout the race. "The race really had to go my way for me to win it. We had another three really strong guys that could have won this race (but) we went in with the one plan to try to get me the win and I really can't thank them enough," Ewan said. "They did so well out there and rode as hard as they could. Silver is OK, I guess."

    He talks to Cycling Australia's media manager Gennie Sheer.
