Welcome to Cycling TV's exclusive Tour Down Under content.
 

Tour Down Under

The Tour Down Under marks the beginning of the professional road cycling season and this year has caused quite a stir with the shock entrance of Lance Armstrong, who will make his come-back appearance in Australia. Coming at a time when a solid preparation for the early season races is essential for riders hoping to take a classic win or the Pro Tour competition leader’s jersey, the race is ideal training for the sport’s big names with its high level of racing and very professional organisation. Lance has definitely stolen the spotlight ahead of the 2009 edition but we mustn’t forget the other big-name stars who have graced this typically sun-drenched course over the years including Robbie McEwen and Stuart O’Grady, never failing to put on a spectacular show.

Half a million Australian spectators turned out last year for the rare opportunity to see their favourite stars up close on their home continent. With a wide variety of other events to interest fans, the region has embraced the race as a Festival of Cycling like no other and the Tour Down Under is always a fantastic one for the spectators, which is why we’re so excited about bringing you all the daily action.
