Drapac Porsche to race Trust House Cycle Classic

The Australian-based Drapac Porsche Cycling Team will make their first ever appearance in New Zealand for next month's Trust House Cycle Classic taking place January 21 to 25, according to race director Jorge Sandoval.

"I wanted to have this team here for years, but because of their reputation they are never short of invitations to other bike races in Asia or the Middle East at the same time as our race," said Sandoval. "Now they are coming and should be a top contender to give Australia another win in the 22-year Tour of Wellington history."
