The Santos Tour Down Under is a cycling event like no other.
There’s nothing like the excitement generated by this event, which proudly remains the only UCI WorldTour race in the southern hemisphere. It’s a festival of cycling embraced by locals and the thousands of interstate and international visitors who gather in South Australia to watch their favourite riders in action.
As the first race on the world cycling calendar each year, the Santos Tour Down Under attracts top professionals eager to make their mark. In 2014 the peloton will again hit the streets, venturing to new routes that take in some of the state’s most stunning landscapes. Tough climbs, blistering sprints and nail-biting fights to the finish are assured as riders battle for the coveted Santos Ochre Leaders Jersey.
Cyclists travel about 800 kilometres, passing many of the attractions the state is known for: lush vineyards, sparkling beaches, charming towns, rolling hills and natural bushland. Global television coverage ensures stunning images of South Australia are beamed into millions of homes, with Adelaide and all it has to offer also in the spotlight.
Fans know the Santos Tour Down Under is far more than simply a bike race and this was certainly clear in 2013, when the event celebrated its 15th anniversary.
