South Australians have been given a few extra days to sign up for the Tour Down Under's koda Breakaway Series, after a record breaking late surge of entries. Organisers have extended the deadline to 5 PM Monday, January 14, 2008, with entries for one of the series' events – the Mutual Community Challenge Tour – already reaching record levels. More than 3,200 people have signed up to ride the same route as the professionals from Mannum to Strathalbyn on Friday, January 25, over 500 more than the previous record.
Organisers have set another record with more than 3,860 people signing up for the whole koda Breakaway Series, which also includes the Mutual Community Fun Tour Mini Tour for Kids, the Mutual Community Challenge Tour presented by The Advertiser (ride on the 134 km stage four route held 25 January) and the Mutual Community Fun Tour presented by The Advertiser (a 20-km fun ride held 20 January).
