Tour Down Under – the 2012 season begins

January sees the start of the WorldTour calendar and RIDE Media is right in the thick of the action in Adelaide.

During the course of the week we are shooting all the most interesting product (as well all the teams bikes) catching up with riders for a coffee or two, and of course discussing the year ahead with the key figures of the sport we love!

You’ll see a full wrap up of the race and all the latest tech in the next edition of RIDE Cycling Review (onsale Feb 26th).  In the mean time here are few images from behind the scenes.

  • Hey guys. Stuey here! I’m back on the @ridecyclingmedia IG following an action packed, Classics mad week with @mummucycling . From Flanders, we hit the Ardennes to tackle the trio of Classics there, finishing off superbly by riding the @amstelgoldrace finale today. A treat to have smooth roads and sunshine on our backs, following a cobble-crazy week.
We also had the pleasure of catching up with this legend ☝️ @eddymerckx525 which was an honour for us all and a very cool experience for our guests. 👑🙌🏻
The fun and games continue this weekend as we head to my favourite...the Queen of the Classics @parisroubaixcourse for a bit of fun in hell 😜.
Tomorrow our crew will tackle the Paris-Roubaix challenge which will be an awesome opportunity to ride some of the races famous sectors and see just how brutal the pavé can be. We’ll then be kicking back Sunday to enjoy all the action and conclude our trip on a high. It’s been real and can’t wait to round it off with the big one this weekend!
I’ll be sharing our progress and some live action on the IG story here, so be sure to tune in!
  • Rubbing shoulders with the locals. Always amusing. @rondevanvlaanderenofficial
