The season-opening round of the Australian National Road Series may well set the standard for the bolstered 14-event calendar with the Woodside Tour de Perth attracting a primed and motivated field for the four-day tour that kicks-off on Rottnest Island from 11 April.
It's the first race of the New Year for many of Australia's top domestic riders and while some racers have filled the early months of the 2013 with some Asia-based tours most will be stepping into their first multi-day race of the year.
The number one squad from the NRS in 2012, Huon Salmon-Genesys Wealth Advisers has local Perth rider Anthony Giacoppo who will be motivated to get his first NRS win of 2013 while a number of other squads like Budget Forklifts, GPM-Data#3, search2retain, Target-Trek and Perth-registered squads Satalyst-Giant and Bianchi-Lotto-Arbitrage will be looking to get the season off to a winning start.
