Countdown to 2010 Santos Tour Down Under

The strongest ever field of cyclists, a brilliant calendar of parties and a massive public bike ride will make this years Santos Tour Down Under the best ever.

Thats the view of Tourism Minister Jane Lomax-Smith who today joined with Tour Director Mike Turtur and South Australian competitor Jack Bobridge at the Adelaide City Council Tour Village in Victoria Square to preview the 2010 event.

Highlights of the 2010 Santos Tour Down Under include:

o 133 cyclists competing in races over seven days along city and country roads through some of the States most beautiful locations

o 7129 registrations for the Mutual Community Challenge Tour a new record (registrations close at 5pm on Friday 8 January)

o 1590 tickets sales for the Legends Night Dinner with Lance Armstrong and Allan Davis (ticket sales close at 5pm on Friday 8 January)

o A huge calendar of parties, festivals and events as part of the Santos Festival of Cycling

o Wider coverage on SBS television and ABC radio than ever before, including live broadcast of stages

Its just 10 days until this years Tour kicks off with the Cancer Council Helpline Classic in the citys east end on Sunday 17 January, Dr Lomax-Smith says.

South Australia is already buzzing as the city, suburbs and regional towns gear up to host spectators, riders and crew members for seven days of elite cycling action.

This years race will boast the best ever line up of riders in the Tours history, including Lance Armstrong, Cadel Evans, Stuart OGrady, Oscar Pereiro, Allan Davis and Alejandro Valverde.

These men are superstars of their sport and have all won some of the biggest cycling races in the world. Their involvement will provide a huge spectacle for cycling fans.

Im also delighted that we have five hometown heroes competing Jack Bobridge, Luke Roberts, Tim Roe, Rohan Dennis and, of course, Stuart OGrady.

I commend Mike Turtur and the Santos Tour Down Under team for their ongoing efforts and also the many local councils and communities who are working to make each stage a success.

The Santos Tour Down Under is a brilliant event that will thrust our State into the international spotlight and I cant wait for the action to start.
