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.

“The 2009 Tour Down Under DVD is a great memento of the most talked about cycling race in Australian history,” Dr Lomax-Smith said.

“The DVD gives the opportunity for fans to watch cycling legend Lance Armstrong’s much anticipated return to the sport, here in South Australia.

“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.”

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.

“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.

“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.”

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.  DVD cover shown is a mock-up from this site.

The 2010 Tour Down Under will take place in South Australia from 17 to 24 January 2010.
