The World Tour circus moves on…and quickly

Stage 6 of the 2015 Tour Down Under only finished at 3:30pm local time in Adelaide. But by 5pm it’s fair to say 85% of the team bikes were cleaned, broken down and packed, ready for transporting at the official team village opposite the Adelaide Hilton. By 8pm most will be at the airport, if not already airborne en route to the big next race. For many of the riders, such as a philosophical Michael Rogers who was enjoying a quiet beer as the Tinkoff-Saxo mechanics packed and bubble wrapped around him, are now off to the Middle East. Others, like most of the Team Sky boys, are heading straight back to Europe. A lucky few including Orica-GreenEDGE’s Simon Clarke have far less travelling in store, only having to make the short hop east to Melbourne for the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race next weekend. Some will even stay a bit longer for the Sun Tour. Regardless, all this equates to a lot of bike boxes…
