The Tour Down Under 2012, alrighty! We’ve had the little teaser of a crit race around a park on the edge of Adelaide’s CBD, which Andre Greipel emphatically dominated, we’ve had head knocks and called cops for GreenEDGE riders.
It’s sad to see GreenEDGE already having to deal with negative press, but that seems to be the Australian way: tall poppies beware. Now we get past the rubbish and see: some proper bike racing!
Stage One is going to be a bunch sprint.
