UCI Oceania To Hold Discussions On Second WorldTour, Future Of Adelaide TDU
Newly hired Int'l Cycling Union (UCI) Oceania President Tracey Gaudry will hold talks in Adelaide, Australia on Friday "about a push for a second WorldTour race," as well as securing the Tour Down Under's future in Adelaide, according to Reece Homfray of THE ADVERTISER. On the 15th anniversary of South Australia's Santos TDU, Gaudry will meet Premier Jay Weatherill and the state's major events department about how it can help "grow and prosper cycling in the region." Victoria's "iconic Herald Sun Tour and one-day Melbourne to Warrnambool race are events Gaudry believes should be considered for upgrading back to higher-level UCI status." Gaudry said that there has been a "push for more international events" in the Oceania region including all disciplines of road, track, mountain bike, BMX and cyclocross (THE ADVERTISER, 1/25).
