Young Guns to Tour Down Under
21 Dec, 2009
The line-up for the UniSA-Australia team competing at the 2010 Santos Tour Down Under will feature the talented young guns of Australian cycling including two local riders.
Race Director Mike Turtur confirmed that South Australians Timothy Roe and Rohan Dennis will make their Santos Tour Down Under debut in January 2010.
"There is no better feeling for a cyclist then racing at the highest level in your home town. Timothy Roe and Rohan Dennis have been given that opportunity and we look forward to their performance next month," said Mike Turtur.
Timothy Roe had a successful season this year riding with Savings and Loans and has now joined Lance Armstrong's Trek-Livestrong U23 squad. Roe has just returned from a training camp with the team and Armstrong's Team RadioShack in Tucson, Arizona.
Rohan Dennis started his cycling career at the age of 15 in a road cycling competition at the Adelaide Cycling Club.
The UniSA-Australia team also includes 2008 Australian Junior Male Cyclist of the Year Michael Matthews and Jonathan Cantwell, who won stage 6 of the 2009 Jayco Herald Sun Tour.
UniSA Vice Chancellor Professor Peter Høj said the University's involvement with the Santos Tour Down Under over the past 10 years had been an exciting and invaluable partnership.
"The Santos Tour Down Under has developed an enormous following in South Australia and a special place in Australia's annual sporting calendar," Prof Høj said.
"As sponsors we are delighted to provide support for the Australian team and to give young riders a chance to shine in this international class event. At the same time the Santos Tour Down Under does a great deal to highlight good health and healthy lifestyles beyond professional competition, with events such as the Mutual Community Challenge Tour and Mutual Community mini tour for kids.
"As one of the biggest allied health educators and research institutions in the state, this is a great fit for UniSA.
"This year's team UniSA-Australia will again provide some terrific opportunities for elite young riders to show us their racing skills and there will be two high potential South Australians in the team – Tim Roe and Rohan Dennis - so local crowds will have a lot to cheer about."
CEO Cycling Australia, Graham Fredericks said, "Australian cycling boasts some outstanding young talent

and racing in the Santos Tour Down Under provides invaluable experience for them and a wonderful opportunity to impress."

The UniSA – Australia team for the 2010 Santos Tour Down Under will be led by Team Manager, David Sanders (AUS) and includes riders:

Michael Matthews (ACT) Rohan Dennis (SA) Simon Clarke (VIC)

Timothy Roe (SA) Jonathan Cantwell (QLD) Peter McDonald (NSW)

The seventh rider of the UniSA – Australia team will be selected after the 2010 Scody Australian Open Road Cycling Championships (6 – 10 January 2010 in Victoria).
