Confirmed with the last four international teams to arrive in Adelaide yesterday, all prize money won by individual riders at the Cancer Council Classic, (€12,000 in total) on Sunday 16 January 2011 wil be donated to the Flood Relief Appeal.

    This is obviously the first big hit out for the sprinters who made the trip to Australia, who do you think will win the bunch kick to the line?

    I think Matt Goss will get an easy win /img/vbsmilies/smilies/wink.gif
