A record field of entries will contest the 2007 South Australian Classic, running January 17 to 20 on the same parcours as the Tour Down Under. The veterans race series is an associated event of the Tour Down Under (January 16 - 21) and will be run just prior to the professionals' race.
"In this year’s race we will see a record 170 riders will start under the archway in Tanunda, and more than 200 riders in Hahndorf," commented Race Organiser Wolfgang Harder.
"We have received a strong response from entrants from across Australia, including Roy Clark from Victoria who is out to defend his Australian Criterium Championship title."
Entrants in the veterans race series (over 35 years-old) are expected from all across Australia as well as a few starters from England.
Wednesday, January 17, Tanunda criterium
