Be inspired by some of our jersey winners

Every night on tour, we award category jersey winners as voted by our team. Here are some of their stories.

Meet Daren Armstrong

Daren was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2001 when he was in his thirties. He was relieved to get the all-clear from his oncologist ten years later. But then in 2013, a routine visit to the dentist revealed a rare tumour in his mouth. Daren had to put on his armour and a brave face once again and fight the disease for the second time. He finished his last round of radiation in 2013 and proudly rode on Signature Tour in March 2014. He was awarded the pink jersey for Inspiration – a very deserving winner! In 2017, Daren's cancer returned for the fourth time. He had 20% of his lungs removed, leaving him with drips and tubes only 4 weeks before the start of Signature Tour. Yet, Daren rode the full tour – that’s right 9 days and 1,300 kilometres! He also personally raised a massive $40,000 so that one day, the world can be cancer-free.

Meet Thelma and Louise

Our favourite funny ladies, Pam Savage and Marg Bailey – more commonly known as Thelma and Louise by the TDC family – are a dynamic duo on tour. They operate as a driver and navigator team, expertly keeping our pelotons safe and hugely entertained during tour. Worthy recipients of the orange jersey for Getting it done, they've driven an old ambulance from Brisbane to Cairns, helping to hydrate the pelotons along the tour. Often they'll hit the sack at 11pm only to be up at 2am to prepare breakfast! On the steepest climbs, they're a welcome sight for the riders, handing out bananas, snakes and Powerade. Nothing stops them – blinking petrol lights, errant medical kits – they take everything in their stride and work tirelessly to keep our riders watered, fed and happy. 

Meet Paul Beretta aka 'Skinny'

As one of our service riders, Paul's skills as a bike mechanic are legendary on tour. Signature Tour 2014 the peloton was forced to ride down the hard shoulder of the freeway coming out of Sydney. Broken glass and debris caused mayhem. In the first 2 days alone, Skinny dealt with 24 punctures and chased the bunch down so many times, he lost count. By the end, he had to take a tow from a car and down two cans of coke to recuperate. He is a very deserving recipient of the orange jersey for Getting it done.
