In a first for the Tour Down Under, cycling fans can relive all of the action from the 2009 Tour Down Under with a new DVD that goes on sale March 3, 2009.
Tourism Minister Jane Lomax-Smith said the DVD features all the highlights of January’s UCI ProTour race, won by Australian Allan Davis from Quick Step.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The 2009 Tour Down Under DVD is a great memento of the most talked about cycling race in Australian history,” Dr Lomax-Smith said.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The DVD gives the opportunity for fans to watch cycling legend Lance Armstrong’s much anticipated return to the sport, here in South Australia.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“All of the thrills, spills and enthralling finishes to the Cancer Council Classic and six race stages of the Tour Down Under are included in the 166 minute program.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The DVD includes a one-hour highlights program of the event and a two-hour feature of the final stage at the Adelaide City Council Street Circuit.
The DVD also includes an exclusive 25 minute interview with Lance Armstrong and a special feature on the Mutual Community Challenge Tour, which saw over 7,000 amateur cyclists ride Stage 4 of the event.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“This is the first time a DVD of the race has gone on sale and is another way to continue to promote both the event and South Australia.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The race showcased a number of South Australia’s greatest locations, including the Barossa, Adelaide Hills and Fleurieu Peninsula to millions of people around the world.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The DVD goes on sale March 3, 2009 and will be available in stores across Australia including JB HIFI, Dymocks, ABC, Target, Big W and CD Wow. Ã‚Â DVD cover shown is a mock-up from this site.
