Tour Dé Southbank

11 Feb 2016

Tour Dé Southbank Image

A star-studded international field, which included the likes of two-time Tour Dé France champion Chris Froome (pictured), raced along Southbank this month as part of the Jayco Herald Sun Tour.

However, it was Tasmanian rider Will Clarke who took out the opening prologue event on February 3 for the second year in a row to upstage the British marquee man.

29-year-old Clarke blitzed the 2.1km course between Federation and Queensbridge Squares in a course record time of 2:34.27, one second ahead of fellow Aussie rider Caleb Ewan.

Froome finished in 26th place, eight seconds behind Clarke in a not unexpected result for the road specialist.

Massive crowds competed for a prime viewing position all along Southbank Promenade for the twilight event, which finished in front of our iconic red steps at Queensbridge Square.
