David Tanner’s Giro Diary: pushing the limits

Hey everyone. I’m guessing most of you keen followers of the Giro back in Australia would be a little tired by now, with all those late nights staying up watching the race. Not half as tired as us riders however! It’s been a very hard and eventful week so far with the climax and icing […]

David Tanner’s Giro Diary: ‘Salve!’ from Lake Iseo

I’m writing this from Lake Iseo on the last rest day of this year’s Giro d’Italia. The rest day was timed perfectly because we have had a solid week of racing and the next six stages are as hard as it gets. It’s an amazing part of the world here in northern Italy. Some of […]

David Tanner’s Giro Diary: what’s in my suitcase

I guess you could say things have been going well for Belkin since my last post. There have been no big dramas anyway. Stage 10 was quite fast but not so long so everyone had fresh legs for the final. And the final was quite hectic with a few crashes. I was hoping to try […]

David Tanner’s Giro Diary: Ciao Ireland, Bonjourno Italy!

Dave Tanner: Where will he go next?

By many accounts, one of Australia’s most under-rated professional cyclists is David Tanner. He wasn’t awarded the privilege to take a direct road to the World Tour, but did so with hard work and determination which has gone largely unnoticed by fans and media. It’s only a matter of time before Tanner snags a big […]
