Tour Down Under

A few years ago the SLCC were asked to act as ambassadors for the Women’s Tour Down Under Teams. This was a new idea that involved a member of our club acting as a point of contact for each of the  racing teams coming to Adelaide. 
Roles of each ambassador varied greatly and was particularly helpful for international teams that were new to Adelaide and the TDU. 
Whether it was providing bike gear, ride routes or giving hints on where to eat and have coffee, to assisting the teams managers on race days – the ambassadors had to be versatile!
Over the past few years it was evident that the international racing women’s teams were participating at a competitive level, often with less resources than the men’s teams. It is pleasing to see that in 2023 they achieved UCI recognition improving the status and equality deserved by women cyclists and by women in sport generally around the world.
We are so proud that the Skinny Lattes can support the TDU in many volunteer roles.
