Its an hour before the race starts…

You’ve arrived at the Tour of Margaret River Event Village. There’s an hour to go before racing gets underway. You’ve got your kit on, and you’re rolling your bike towards the starting grid. Your eyes witness the spectacle of 800 riders preparing for the race ahead. There’s excitement in the air. You feel the whir of turbo trainers as you weave through the throng, you smell the aroma of fresh coffee, you hear the jokes and jibes of nervous riders. Then over the loud speakers you hear two very familiar voices…they’re calling your name.
