We're Tour Down Under Ambassadors!

Race director Kimberley Conte (a member of SLCC) approached the SLCC a few years ago to act as ambassadors for the Women’s Tour Down Under Teams. This was a new idea that would see a member of our club acting as a point of contact for each of the female racing teams coming to Adelaide. 
 
Roles of each ambassador varied greatly and was particularly helpful for international teams that were new to the TDU or had language/ cultural barriers. Having a local with local knowledge helps a lot!
Whether it was giving hints on where to eat, ride or have coffee to assisting the teams managers with more practical hands-on tasks, holding bikes, sunnies or providing the odd snack or home baked treat. The ambassador role is to be versatile!
 
Of particular significance was that the SLCC is a women’s group looking after women.
 
Over the past few years it is evident that these international racing women’s teams are working hard, often with less resources than the men’s teams, to improve the status and equality deserved by women’s cycling and by women in sport generally around the world.
 
We are so proud the Skinny Lattes can be a part of this! We look forward to when the TDU resumes!
