Former Davitamon-Lotto rider, Nic Sanderson, will travel to Tasmania next month for his first attempt at the National Grid Christmas Carnivals. Sanderson, winner of the 2005 Bendigo Madison, has proven track credentials and should feature strongly in the longer distance events.

The 22 year-old from Ararat, Victoria has returned to the Australian Institute of Sport team after a brief stint in Europe earlier this year.

Grant Atkins, president of the Sports Carnivals Association of Tasmania, was excited at the prospect of Sanderson racing the series, "It will be the first time this aggressive cyclist has raced at the carnivals and I know his stamina and speed will thrill the crowds," he said.
