Re: Santos Tour Down Under

the selection process for the UniSA team for Down Under is going on differently as initially planed:

In 2018, some developments that Cycling Australia had hoped to initiated would see a little change in the dynamic of the UniSA team. The sport’s administrators are aiming to provide a ‘reward’ for excellence in the domestic National Road Series (NRS) by giving the winning team five places in the subsequent edition of the Tour Down Under.

That is, at least, the intention as announced last November after an “extensive review” of the NRS.

The reality, however, may be a little different. There are regulations that need to be adhered to and it involves ensuring that all riders who compete in WorldTour races are subjected to stringent doping controls. Cycling Australia was apparently reminded of this detail in March last year but, according to some closely associated with the NRS, it seems that the federation hasn’t managed this element correctly.

Roughly translated, the rules stipulate that riders should be subjected to the highest drug testing protocols in cycling for a minimum of six weeks. If they haven’t been, then sorry: no place for you in the WorldTour.
