2007 Tour of Tasmania takes on northwest coast

The 2007 Tour of Tasmania will take a leap forward with six of its 11 stages to be raced on the northwest coast. The tour, to be held from October 2 to 7, will pass through nine municipalities. It will start for the first time in Devonport on Tuesday, October 2, and finish with a festival-style criterium at Launceston's Brickfields Reserve on the following Sunday.

Tour director John Craven described the new course as a travelogue for Tasmania. "The route will display the North and North-West regions of Tasmania in all their visual splendour," Craven said. "It is a course well worthy of a top-flight international bike race."

The tour is expected to attract an outstanding field from all Australian states, with a sprinkling of overseas riders.
