Shannon’s Story

By | General News | No Comments

Shannon Miraglia always led an active lifestyle until a back injury prevented her from exercising for 18 months. As a part of her recovery program and in an effort to get back to her “optimum weight” Shannon took up cycling with the Perth Integrated Health Cycling Group. Six months later, (and 14kg lost) Shannon participated in the Niche Living Women’s Training Program conducted by Hall Cycle Training and soon after completing the program decided to step up from participation events to racing. Shannon will come to the 2015 Tour as a part of the Next Vision Women’s Cycling Team, by her own admission she may not be a contender at the tour, but that’s not the point.

Durbridge set to target Stage 1

By | Media Releases | No Comments

He thrilled us at the Giro d’Italia and he is currently stomping up the mountains of the Tour de France, but will Luke Durbridge be able to set the fastest time up Hill View Road in Stage 1 of ToMR?  It will be no easy task to win this stage though as several of the professional riders in the tour will view the 7.4km Time Trial as their chance to secure a ToMR Medal, (and a cow.) Luke will also be up against a host of local talent who will be looking to impress and put themselves into GC contention for the rest of the tour. A big thank you to Nicole, Andrew and Roger from Total Travel WA for bringing Luke to Margaret River and for stepping up to become major sponsors of the event.

Important change to Stage 4

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Thanks to the support of City of Busselton we are now starting this stage from the spectacular coastal hamlet of Yallingup. This alteration to the start location makes the stage significantly more challenging with the incorporation of two categorised climbs, including the potentially decisive climb of Wildwood Road.

Avanti Racing

ACJ brings ART to up the ante

By | Media Releases | No Comments

Andrew Christie-Johnston is one of the most respected people in Australian Cycling and he is bringing the Avanti Racing Team across to WA to compete in this year’s Satalyst Tour of Maargaret River. Originally based in Tasmania the team is now officially registered as a UCI Continental Team from New Zealand. With names like Patrick Bevan, Neil Van der Ploeg, Joseph Cooper, Brenton Jones and current World Under 23 Time Trial Champion Campbell Falckmore in the squad we can expect them to have a very strong team at ToMR. After returning to some good form at the recent Tour of Korea, many locals will be hoping that West Australian sprinter AJ Giacoppo will also be in the final team and adding to his stage wins from the 2013 tour.

OTOC-Vault

Merging Powers

By | General News | No Comments

The OTOC Vault Racing Team arrived on the NRS scene this year in a way reminiscent of the Lothbroks going on a family holiday to the County of Wessex, pulling off a stunning victory at the Tour de Perth against quality opposition. Their recent merger with the GDT Flanders Team brings together master tacticians Brad Hall and Gordon Hindley in a formidable combination. With high calibre riders like Stephen Hall and Jai Hindley likely to return to Australia for the tour and the prodigious young talents of Michael Storer and Craig Wiggins at their disposal, this team will be looking to take home both the GC and Young Riders Jersey from Margaret River.

Terengganu to represent Malaysia at ToMR

By | Media Releases | No Comments

One of the most dynamic UCI Continental Teams in Asian, the Terengganu Cycling Team will be heading down under to compete in the 2015 ToMR.  TCT is based in the beautiful and resource rich Terengganu region of Malaysia and since its establishment in 2011 the team has become accustomed to successful results racing in Asian Tours. We don’t have a final team selection yet, but with riders of the calibre of Annuar Mannan, Mohd Nor Umardi Rosdi, Maarten de Jonge and the Salleh brothers in the squad, TCT will have the firepower to have a real impact in November.

Important ruling from UCI regarding ToMR and Motorhomes

By | Media Releases | One Comment

After the recent controversy at the Giro d’Italia surrounding the use of motorhomes and the exchanging of wheels between riders from differing teams, we thought that it would be prudent to write to the UCI and seek clarification on both issues in relation to our tour. Although it could be open to other interpretations, we are taking the ensuing response of “Where the hell is Margaret River?” as confirmation that it will be ok to sleep in a motorhome at ToMR and that it will be acceptable to lend a wheel to a mate without the risk of incurring a time penalty.

Scurlock to lead FDC

By | Media Releases | No Comments

In March of 2015 Lee Scurlock set a new distance benchmark for West Australian riders of 695.6km in cold and wet conditions to win the Delirium 24 Hour Road Race. An absolute Superstar of endurance racing, Scurlock will lead an impressive Fat Duck Cycles team at the 2015 tour as they shoot for a top ten position on GC or better. Scurlock himself may not quite have the bike speed to win the tour, but one thing is for sure; he will get to the final kilometres of each stage with plenty left in the tank.

Friend or Foe?

By | General News | No Comments

On paper Stage 1 looks little more than a prologue at just 7.5km, however when you add in some serious gradients this stage will be a lot more challenging than it appears on paper. To add to the intrigue each team will commence the stage together, however every rider will be given their own individual time at the finish line. It raises the question; Will your team work together or will you race each other to the top to establish your GC rider for the rest of the tour?  This ascent will not decide the tour, but with a number of categorised climbs to come in the following days it will show us who the real contenders are.
