Tour Down Under 2015 – The Cannondale-Garmin – BMC Training Ride Video

TDUCannondale2015-1Day five of riding with professional road cyclists.  Likely the last day, because I’m knackered, the Tour Down Under starts Sunday, and I’m going to do a gravel ride early Sunday or Monday.

January 16, I did a relaxing training ride with Cannondale-Garmin along the beaches of Adelaide.  Any Adelaide cyclist will know this route.  Down Anzac Highway, Glenelg, Henley Beach, etc.  The Garmin lads cut the ride short at a cafe in Henley Beach Square before turning for home.

The Cannondale-Garmin team features:

  • Ryder Hesjedal
  • Nathan Haas
  • Lasse Hansen
  • Jack Bauer
  • Alex Howes
  • Moreno Moser
  • Davide Villella

After splitting from Cannondale-Garmin, I ran into BMC Racing who were headed for yet another beach run.  Pretty unfortunate really :), and the weather was perfect.

The video is about three and a half minutes in length.  Please enjoy in High Definition, courtesy of YouTube.

    JOM, Awesome video. The pro blokes will enjoy seeing this too!
    Can we get you to guest ride in the race to video until they start slamming gears?

      Haha Jimbo… I could handle the easy tempo pace as long as they stuck to the beach roads. Pro cyclist steady tempo pace on the climb = you could be in the doo doo.
