All teams should be advised that we are changing the way that we award jerseys in the 2015 tour and it could influence the way you put your team together. The changes reflect a maturing of the race and our desire to find the absolute best riders in each age group. The changes also recognise that we are now one of the largest women’s races in the country by awarding age specific jerseys to female riders as well. Please take a minute to review our provisional list of jerseys for 2015 and send us your feedback. 2015 Jerseys
Other sports thrive because they can sell tickets to spectators, road cycling complains because spectators will not buy tickets…. or will they? It’s early days for our Spectator Pass, but with over 200 sold already we think we are on the way to selling the first 2000 that we have on order from the printers. From our perspective it’s a great way to build a better tour and for cycling fans a ToMR Spectator Pass represents a whole lot of value for a relatively nominal fee.
We have locked and loaded the stages for 2015 and it’s fair to say that this year’s tour will be very different to 2014. There is definitely more for the climbers and overall we think that we have met the challenge of constructing a more “epic” tour while at the same time managing to make the tour even safer. Perhaps the thing that stands out most about this year’s race is the breathtaking scenery we have been able to incorporate into the stages. The pictured view is from the early kilometres of Stage 2 that commences with a 420 metre ascent from the floor of the Blackwood Valley.
We are gathering the best people we can to help us make the largest sporting event in Western Australia. If you have a passion for Cycling, Media, Logistics, Photography or even Motorbikes, we could have a place for you on one of our crew or volunteer teams. If you would like to be a part of the tour please send a brief resumé outlining your experience and your particular field of interest or expertise to firstname.lastname@example.org Applicants from the Eastern States will be considered in addition to those from Western Australia.
