Baden Cooke leads Team Barloworld in Australia

While one Team Barloworld squad targets the end of season races in Italy, another has headed down under to Australia to ride the 57th edition of the Jayco Herald Sun Tour , the seven-day stage race held in Melbourne between Sunday October 12 and 18.

Local hero Baden Cooke will lead Team Barloworld on his return to Australia for the winter. The racing begins with a circuit race on a 2.1km city centre course around Traralgon that will be covered 21 times. The short stage is not valid for the overall classification but will give the race a fast start and suits Cooke's aggressive racing style and fast finish.
