What happened to Ewan? Looked like he might finally have some endurance and then ... nope
For a sprinter Ewan's climbing is OK, but still brittle - he will crack if it is too hot, too far, too many attacks and chases etc. When he finished 2nd at Road Nats to Hausler, it was cool - about 18 to 22 from memory - and he rode with a dwindling peleton, not in the break.
Also he was targeted by the break yesterday - nobody except Durbo wanted Ewan to stay there to the end and sprint against him. I think the series of attacks by Morton, Sutherland?, Shaw?, Dyball? was more about shaking Ewan off the back, than the attacker getting clear of the break.
