Lateral Events and SBS today announced that Simon Gerrans and Rohan Dennis will join The Tour on Stage with Phil Liggett and Jens Voigt to present an insider’s conversation into the triumphs, tribulations and euphoria of pursuing the yellow jersey. The Tour On Stage heads out nationally this November with tickets on sale now.

Hear from some of the most experienced and accomplished riders in world cycling as they dissect the sport, the riders, the tours and share untold stories; giving an unparalleled insight into professional cycling.

Simon Gerrans, captain of the ORICA-GreenEDGE team will join The Tour on Stage in Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne and Canberra. With a stage win in each Grand Tour – the only Australian to do so – and a coveted two-day stint in the Tour de France yellow jersey, Gerrans is a bona fide Australian success story.

Camaraderie, mateship and honour. Three pillars that define Gerrans, also define ORICA- GreenEDGE, the team he calls home. Having been part of the ORICA-GreenEDGE family since its inception in 2012, Gerran’s now enmeshed in the culture that he believes sets his team apart. He’s delivered the team two national road titles – and their first “monument” win at Milan – Sanremo – but it was the selfless act of passing on the yellow jersey to teammate Daryl Impey in the 2013 Tour de France that signified what ORICA-GreenEDGE really means to him. It also solidified his reputation as the ‘Mr Nice Guy’ of the professional peloton.

BMC Racing’s Rohan Dennis, will join The Tour on Stage in Adelaide and Sydney. Dennis began his career by focusing on the track, and was part of the Australian team that took silver in the team pursuit at the 2012 Olympic Games.

Dennis set a new world hour record on the boards of 52.491km in February, beating Matthias Brändle’s record by over 600 metres. He was selected to ride the 2015 Tour de France as a key lieutenant to team leader Tejay van Garderen and proved his worth with a dramatic stage one Time Trial victory achieved in record breaking time around the Utrecht city streets. Dennis became the first yellow jersey wearer of the 2015 Tour de France, becoming just the 7th Australian to don the Golden Fleece.

Following his stellar performance at the 2015 Tour de France, in August Dennis won the US Pro Challenge, the world’s highest altitude UCI stage road race, becoming the first foreigner to do so.

The Tour on Stage is a rare opportunity for passionate cycling fans to sit down with icons of the sport they love, pose their own questions and see footage from some of the most poignant moments in the history of professional cycling.
