South Australian Tourism Commission 2019 Santos Tour Down Under Legends' Night Dinner

The Legends' Night Dinner celebrates the best in cycling: the athletes who ride into the record books and the machines that take them over the line.

jennie bell ink was engaged for a 5th year to event manage this unique dinner which hosted 1,000 guests from around Australia and across the world. Cycling fans, international riding teams, the world's media and sponsors enjoyed a three-course dining experience accompanied by fine wines at the Adelaide Convention Centre.

A feature of the dinner has become the 'Legends on Show' exhibition, which profiles 10 rare and unusual bikes from the 1800s through to the latest technology of today.

This year's dinner paid an emotional tribute to a true legend of the sport, cycling commentator Paul Sherwen. His long-time commentating partner Phil Liggett MBE paid tribute to Paul, followed by a video package which profiled Paul's life and his achievements, on and off the bike.

Three cycling legends were honoured on the night - Mathew Hayman, Amanda Spratt and Elia Viviani who all shared stories of their rise to the top and the highs and lows of their careers.
