After nearly a month's break, the Subaru National Road Series returns on June 19 with the Santos North Western Tour – stop five on the calendar for the men and stop four for the women.
It's a better organised and far safer race that greets the peloton in 2013 with a hefty police presence, after the inaugural running of the tour was mired in controversy. The man behind the Commonwealth Bank Classic, Phill Bates, with nearly 40 years of experience to his name, along with Warren Scott took charge of the North Western Tour's management in March. Some stages received an overhaul, another was scrapped but the overall result, according to Bates will be an event that is "simpler, better and far more safe."
