Today we are launching a new weekly feature: the Flashback Gallery. VeloNews photo editor Brad Kaminski is digging into the archives to bring up these galleries from years’ past. For the first edition, Brad thought it made sense to present pics from the first ever Tour Down Under, in 1999. It was Stuart O’Grady’s first of two overall wins at the race. Twelve years ater, O’Grady is back for another go this year.
The Tour Down Under’s first stage is Tuesday (late Monday U.S. time). Anthony Tan will be providing reports for VeloNews from the race. Graham Watson will be sending galleries each day.
