The Belgian Lotto team have signed Australian sprinter Caleb Ewan, winner of a stage on last year’s Giro d’Italia with Mitchelton, to a two-year deal. Ewan, a 24-year-old from Sydney, will become the team’s number one sprinter, replacing the German Andre Greipel who is moving to French team Fortuneo-Samsic.

Lotto posted the news on social media quoting Ewan saying the team “has a great history concerning sprinters and classics”.
