The Rabobank team for January’s Santos Tour Down Under has been announced, and will be led by Australian sprinter Graeme Brown. The inclusion of Brown, a four-time Tour Down Under stage winner and double Olympic champion in Athens 2004, has greatly pleased race director Mike Turtur.

“Graeme Brown had a great start to the 2009 season with a stage win at the 2009 Tour Down Under and two stage wins at the Vuelta a Murcia race,” said Turtur.

As well as Brown, the rest of the team interests Turtur: “The Rabobank team line-up is quite formidable with two regining Dutch national champions, a dual Olympic gold medalist and a Tour de France stage winner,” he said. “The experience on this team should show on the results board come January.

“Tom Leezer may be one to watch for Škoda King of the Mountain contention,” he continued, “as he held the lead in the mountains at the 2009 Tour of Spain in Stages 2 and 3.”

Rabobank’s line up for the 2010 Santos Tour Down Under will be led by Team Manager, Frans Maassen and includes:
Graeme Brown (AUS)
Stef Clement (NED)
Rick Flens (NED)
Tom Leezer (NED)
Koos Moerenhout (NED)
Jos van Emden (NED)
Pieter Weening (NED)
