"Found some nice boots in my size to keep my legs warm...the best way to recover"
Andre Greipel won the Down Under Classic (the closed circuit race, stand alone event) which took place in conjunction with the Tour Down Under last Sunday. The official website of the Tour reports, "The Classic is the curtain raiser for the Santos Tour Down Under, which Greipel (Lotto-Belisol) has won twice, in 2008 and 2010. Tonight he crossed the line ahead of Norway's Edvald Boasson Hagen (Sky) with Australian Heinrich Haussler (Garmin-Barracuda) third." Video highlights (5:41) of final km and interviews.
@HansenAdam tweeted the Lotto Belisol train that made it all possible
