Official summary of the TDU EFEX Prologue:
The best way to welcome back Australia’s greatest cycling race? A city prologue. It’s an event first – one sure to test the peloton.
The 5.5-kilometre Adelaide Riverbank route begins on the footbridge and finishes near the Elder Park Rotunda, with tight turns and a dive-bomb descent in the mix.
Will local legend – and former world time trial champion – Rohan Dennis take victory? Anything is possible as greatness returns. TDU.com
