Rohan Dennis confident about 2016 success
2015 Santos Tour Down Under winner, Rohan Dennis is confident about his success in 2016 and said that Australian riders are in top form this year.
Dennis confirmed that Australian riders Simon Gerrans, Richie Porte, Cameron Myer and Nathan Haas will be stiff competition throughout the Tour.
“Gerrans you can’t go past. Obviously Richie – he’s always good, but he’s my teammate. There are always a couple more guys – Cameron Myer and Nathan Haas – Australians in general are very strong in nationals,” he said.
