He is the Captain of the Australian Team that will take on the world this Sunday and he could be the captain of your team in the Tour of Margaret River. After his stellar performance in the Vuelta and leading the Australian Road Team at the World Champs, Simon Clarke will be heading to Western Australia to participate in TOMR . Simon will be one of the featured riders in One More Ride’s TOMR campaign, along with OMR Co-Founder and retired professional Andrea Nicosia. The great news for punters is that if you don’t already have a team, OMR is offering the chance to race in a team with Simon! Like all of the pro riders in the Tour, Simon will be able to scale his output to match his team. We recommend leaving him on the front for slightly longer stints in the Team Time Trial.
This year The Tour heads back to its original home of Cowaramup for Stage 1 and already the locals are hard at work on all the small things that make an event special. Pictured are the bases for the 2016 Group Trophies that are currently being made at the Cowaramup Men’s Shed by local craftsmen Peter Clews. The selected wood is Marri and its trademark gum veins combined with hand carving will ensure that each trophy is a unique work of art. In the immortal words of Darryl Kerrigan “That’s going straight to the pool room”
