Tough new stages await elite women in Santos Tour Down Under

The event will be the first ever UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale) Women’s WorldTour stage race in the southern hemisphere after being elevated to the top category of racing for 2023.

Two of the three stages will take place in the Hills with aggressive sprints and climbs including the notorious Corkscrew all set to feature.

Assistant Race Director Annette Edmondson said she looked forward to seeing international cycling back in her home state.
“It will be a big moment to have the first ever UCI Women’s WorldTour stage race here in South Australia and to see the very best female cyclists competing across our state once again,” Edmondson said.

“We have worked to create a race that will excite and challenge the peloton but also deliver an entertaining experience for spectators, and I can’t wait to see how the riders tackle each stage.”
