The Tour Down Under (TDU) in South Australia always feels like the first beginnings of the new cycling year. It's the first big race on the calendar that slowly builds to the Spring Classics and the Grand Tours. It's a nice moment to think that we're beginning a new season and I look forward to the racing and riding to come. In the UK, TV coverage of the TDU is only on Sky (subscription based service) so if you don't have Sky (like me) – there is an official YouTube channel and these highlights come from there. Enjoy!
