Richie Porte handed keys to Tasmanian city of Launceston



Richie Porte (Team Ineos Grenadiers) returned to his home state, after headlining at the Santos Festival of Cycling, to spend his 36th birthday receiving awards from both the City of Launceston and AusCycling Tasmania. 

The Monaco-based rider, who was born in Launceston and grew up in the nearby town of Hadspen, has long been recognised as one of Australia’s top cyclists but broke through to a new level with his Tour de France podium in 2020. Porte is the first Australian rider to finish on the podium of the French Grand Tour since Cadel Evans took the top step in 2011.
