It must be said, the enthusiasm is charming Down Under, to say the least. This is a very well organised race and probably conducted better than most other ProTour races. Events South Australia have made a hit out of the race in a time span of only ten years, a job well done. Now they have Team Highroad's Anderé Greipel as the winner of the 2008 edition, we think it's time to take it to the next level.
As the Tour Down Under is the new start to the ProTour season and it is the ‘newbee’ on the cycling calendar; we were wondering why it is so successful? Who’s the driving force behind this new ProTour event? When CyclingFever.com spoke to Mike Turtur that became abundantly clear.
