Santos Tour Down Under
When: 16 Jan 2020 - 26 Jan 2020

The Santos Tour Down Under is the first stop for the world's best cycling teams and riders, and is the opening event of the UCI WorldTour.
First held in 1999, the Santos Tour Down Under is the biggest cycling race in the southern hemisphere.
This 11-day event brings UCI WorldTour professional cycling (male) teams to race on the streets of Adelaide and regional South Australia each January. Up for grabs are important UCI points and the Santos Ochre Leader’s Jersey. The event also plays host to a UCI Women's 2.1-grade event (one level below Women's World Tour status), which brings some of the world's best female cyclists to Adelaide.
Not just a bike race, the Santos Tour Down Under is home to the largest Festival of Cycling in the southern hemisphere, with a range of associated events, mass-participation rides for kids and adults through the Subaru Breakaway Series, street parties and live music combining to create a massive party atmosphere across South Australia.
The Santos Tour Down Under invites the whole state to the party by taking the race through South Australian regions.
