If you can't wait for the post ride report, follow the FYXO TDU on twitter or Instagram.
I've finally succembed to peer pressure and will be taking a support vehicle for the ride this year. I plan to raise funds to bring the broadcast of future Tour Down Under back to SBS, or at a minimum commentators that know how to correctly pronounce the surname of the greatest cyclist of all time.
Thanks to Duttons for lending a helping hand.
4 days / 1000km.
This is the plan, a slightly longer, more scenic route to (R)Adelaide. Last time I rode my Llewellyn. She's has changed a little, gained a bit of C-Record weight, but I'm sure she'll carry me across in the same style. It's just up to the legs to perform umteen thousand rotations.

For those who take the internet literally, I should state now that I was joking about the support vehicle.
This is my actual support vehicle, stuffed with tools, tubes, chargers, creams, powders, lights, toothbrush, arm and knee warmers, jacket, and of course my camera and two lenses.
The Boss will be in store while I'm away and will have some treats for those who stop by in my abscence.
For those on Willunga hill for Saturday's stage lookout for a weary ride in FYXO kit amongst the crowd, say hello and hand me a cold one!
Back in a week.
