TDU Winner and CMI Ambassador: Rohan Dennis
On Sunday 25th January, Rohan Dennis became the seventh Australian to win the Tour Down Under since its inception in 1999.
The young Adelaide-born cyclist made his way into first place during Stage 3 of the race, and held on until the final run around the Adelaide CBD on Sunday morning.
Dennis stated to the media: "My team rode awesomely, you couldn't fault them. They sat at the front and made sure I was out of the wind. When I got pushed back someone always dropped back and pushed me forward. They really have helped me win this and make it easier."
Dennis said cycling legend Cadel Evans offered sage advice throughout the final stage, and played a key role in achieving overall honours. Evans finished third overall in his last top-level race before he ends his legendary cycling career on February 1.
CMI Toyota are very proud to sponsor Rohan and we wish him and his team at BMC all the best for the rest of 2015.
