The People’s Choice Classic Criterium which serves as the prologue to the Santos Tour Down Under, took place this evening in down town Adelaide and Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka were set on lighting up the 50km circuit race. Taking in 22 laps of a 2.3km circuit, the race began with a bang, thanks largely to our Nathan Haas who went from the starting blocks like a true race horse. The peloton was intent on keeping Haas under wraps but he kept the pressure on for the first 3 laps until our young Australian, Ben O’Connor saw a gap to get off the front. O’Connor.
