Tour village provides unique experience for the pros

A select number of the professional peloton were given a very special experience on Saturday in the Tour Down Under village when they were introduced to some of Adelaide's native fauna.

Koalas, snakes, kangaroos - there was plenty to see and most of the pros welcomed the opportunity to do something different ahead of the race's official opener - the Down Under Classic

Gert Steegmans (Omega Pharma-Quickstep) was in attendance, as were many of the GreenEdge women's team including Amanda Spratt and Melissa Hoskins.
