Santos Tour Down Under

The bikes are back in town this January as the Adelaide Hills prepares to host stages of the Women's and the Men's Santos Tour Down Under.

Two stages of the Women's race will finish in the district; Stage 1 with an exhilarating sprint into the main street of Birdwood and Stage 3 seeing riders fight for victory along the famous Stirling circuit.

Starting in Lobethal for the second time in the race's history, Stage 3 of the Men's race will see the peloton will complete two laps of Lobethal and Charleston, before making its way up Fox Creek Road for Subaru King of the Mountain. Riders will then fly through Lenswood and into Uraidla to begin seven dramatic laps of the Piccadilly Valley on the way to the finish line.

It's going to be a busy and exciting time in the Hills. Stay up to date with the latest STDU developments via this page and our social media channels.
