Locked and Loaded

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

We have locked and loaded the stages for the 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.

Balingup at it’s Best.

By | Media Releases | No Comments

The picturesque township of Balingup is the latest South West town to be incorporated into the 2015 tour. With it’s numerous Cafe’s and Galleries it will be the perfect place for spectators to sit back and watch as the tour makes it’s way into town. It will also be a great place to encourage your favourite riders who will have completed five categorised climbs before their arrival! Balingup is at it’s best in the Spring and when you combine it’s best with The Tour, you have the formula for a perfect day out.

It’s a wrap on 2014, but where to now for the tour?

By | Uncategorized | 13 Comments

More spectator barricades, more parking and more food options in the village, these are a few of the ideas flowing through to our desk post tour. Already we have also had several teams approaching us looking to secure invites for 2015. We need to look at our invites in context of our desire to incorporate at least a few teams from the Eastern States and a few from overseas. We are also conscious of the fact that securing a place sooner rather than later is relevant to the planning and sponsor procurement of our participating teams. It’s a nice problem to have with more teams wanting to race than we can cater for, but never the less it is a real problem and one that we will be looking into over  the next few weeks.  Two things that we can say for sure about 2015; The Pro-Am format will be back and we will be pushing out into the hillier areas of the greater Blackwood Valley.  Feel free to send us your feedback and feel free to send us details of potential stages that you would like to see included in future tours.

Hall wins fans, and nearly the tour.

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

He may have narrowly missed out on taking home the Satalyst Green Jersey to team mate Shannon Johnson, but Stephen Hall’s courageous effort to start and complete Stage 5 will remain one of the endearing memories of the 2014 Tour. The above podium picture celebrates his decisive victory on the final climb of Stage 2 just hours before his tour nearly came to a premature end during the sprint finish of Stage 3.

Mackey sees off rivals to win Pink Jersey.

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

She may not class herself as a climber, but a decisive move on Stage 2 set Arbitrage Racing’s Rebecca Mackey up to win the tour’s Pink Jersey. Mackey didn’t have it all her own way though and had to see off strong challenges from team mate Cassia Higgs and up and coming star Erin Kinnealy.  All three riders consistently showed the ability to break away from the women’s peloton during the tour.  Mackey spent most of the final stage of the tour in a break with Kinnealy before riding away in the final kilometre to secure her third stage victory.

Yates takes out Stage 5 as Johnson wins the tour.

In a reverse of the result from the previous day Satalyst Giant’s Theo Yates came over the top over Shannon Johnson to win the final stage of the tour. Johnson’s second place in the stage was enough to elevate him above courageous team mate Stephen Hall in the tour’s final overall standings. Hall suffered a serious fall in Stage 4 but bravely rode through his injuries to finish a credible 9th in the final stage.  Dylan Pierre-Humbert rounded off the open podium to cement and outstanding tour for the Wormall Civil Team.

Some amazing scenery and some amazing performances on day 3 of the tour. Our Men’s Leader was taken out in the sprint, Johnson lived up to expectations, Kinnealy thrills her South West fans and our Total Travel WA Sprint Jersey moves to Group 3!  As much action as the Tour de France? We think more! Tomorrow is Super Sunday for spectators, if you live within driving distance you absolutely have to make the journey down South.
