TdF Stage 13: McEwen's Hat Trick

AUSTRALIAN DOES IT AGAIN. Who’d have thought after being relegated (stripped of points and given the lowest place in the peloton finish for the day) for apparent head butting in stage 3, Robbie McEwen would recover to win three stages in this year’s Tour de France? The Australian is demonstrating that, if he is not the best sprinter in the world, he certainly is the best sprinter in this year’s Tour. McEwen’s win pulls him to within striking distance of Thor Hushovd in the Green Jersey competition. Tom Boonen, who won two stages and was wearing the Maillot Vert, dropped out of the race due to injuries sustained in a stage 11 crash.
