The Quiet before the Storm - TDU begins

The Down Under Classic starts in less than 6 hours. It's a 51km street circuit Crit race around an inner city park in Adelaide. It's the Pro Team prologue race before the start of the Tour Down Under on Tuesday. It's going to be FAST! The home straight is down hill with a tail wind!!

I arrived early to Adelaide this lovely Sunday morning, reassembled my bike and went out for a quick reconnaissance ride to see how things were shaping up. The streets are buzzing with cyclists everywhere. Here's a few pics of todays race circuit and the 'Tour Village' & Bike Expo next to the Adelaide Hilton Hotel were all the Pro Team riders stay.

Stay tuned for more updates re the goings on in Adelaide over the next week.

I'm here, wish you were beautiful ;)

Cheers,

Paul
