Robbie McEwen won the OCBC Cycle Singapore for new team GreenEDGE last night. The 39-year-old Australian, a veteran of twelve Tours de France, said, "I had a feeling it would be a breakaway tonight and I had to be part of it. I had to ride an aggressive race - the six of us out front cooperated really well to keep us away from the pack. It's my first win of the season and I was hoping to get a win this year so tonight was very special for me."
Hitec Products-Mistral Home's 31-year-old rider Sara Mustonen was hit by a car during a training ride yesterday, team manager Karl Lima said via his Twitter account. Swedish Sara, who won the Tour de Pologne Feminin in 2008, is understood to be unhurt.
