TDU organizer predicts Aussie Tour domination

The Australian | Turtur predicts great Aussie Tour

Mike Turtur, who runs the Australian Tour Down Under, tells The Australian he sees this Tour as likely to feature the best performance ever by Australian riders:

"We could have three riders in the top 20 come Paris, if all goes well."

Turtur calls out Michael Rogers, Cadel Evans, and Brad McGee as the Aussies "capable of high overall placings," and thinks McEwen could pile up some stage wins and compete for the green jersey.

The Tour Down Under will also have a car in the Tour de France race caravan this year, promoting the race and South Australia as a tourist destination.
