It will be the first time in Australia for Pierre Latour and the French National ITT Champion is ready:
“I am happy to have the chance to race these Australian events for the first time.
I have been a professional since 2015, but
I have never had the opportunity to start a race so far away.
My winter has been productive, I have not been hobbled by any health glitches, and
I feel good on the bike.
This trip to Australia holds many interests for me. It will allow me to make my first efforts in a competition for the year, and will also present a good early test with the finish at the top of Willunga Hill (5th stage).
I don’t know what to expect at the Santos Tour Down Under, but we have a great team. We will be 25 days on site in Australia, which will also give us the chance to do some training sessions in excellent weather conditions.
After that, I will start my European campaign at the Faun Environment – Classic of the Ardèche Rhône Crussol.”
