Santos Tour Down Under

SANTOS TOUR DOWN UNDER – 20 – 27 January 2013

One interesting point about this race is that it is used by many elite cyclists from Europe as their season opener and a run for the team – hence it is packed with big names.
Orica Greenedge made their debut in this in 2012 and went on to have a very successful first year. They have a Pro Licence through to the end of 2013 so they will be in all the major races again and trying to cement a permanent position on the pro tours.
