Happy Tuesday everyone and who would have believed we could bust out a week of weather like we are having for the SBS Bank Tour of Southland this week!
It is truly remarkable and as they make their way to Te Anau today – along with every other stage until completion on Saturday – you can follow the live commentary online, keep up with all the results, televised broadcasts and much more at www.tourofsouthland.com, including the tour's Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram.
It’s early in the race yet and it could be anyone’s title again this year so keep an eye on how it’s tracking and head along on Saturday to welcome them to the finish, at around 3pm in Gala Street as well.
