SANTOS Tour Down Under

This nine-day event brings top UCI World­Tour pro­fes­sion­al cycling 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.

In 2008 the San­tos Tour Down Under joined the pres­ti­gious UCI World­Tour and was the first event out­side cycling’s tra­di­tion­al home of Europe to do so. The UCI World­Tour brings togeth­er the most pres­ti­gious teams and the best rid­ers in the world to com­pete in the best races.

Some of the very best in road cycling have com­pet­ed at the San­tos Tour Down Under dur­ing its eigh­teen-year his­to­ry. Tour de France win­ners Oscar Pereiro, Andy Schleck, Alber­to Con­ta­dor and Car­los Sas­tre have all raced in Ade­laide, along­side Aussie leg­ends Simon Ger­rans, Stu­art O’Grady, Rob­bie McEwen, Cadel Evans and Allan Davis.

Not just a bike race, the San­tos Tour Down Under is a fes­ti­val of cycling, with a range of asso­ci­at­ed events and fes­ti­vals that cre­ate a mas­sive par­ty atmos­phere across South Aus­tralia. Ama­teur cyclists can also get involved in the action through the Sub­aru Break­away Series, which gives peo­ple the chance to ride part of the UCI World­Tour race route.

The San­tos Tour Down Under invites the whole state to the par­ty by tak­ing the race through South Aus­tralian regions. The race typ­i­cal­ly starts and con­cludes with excit­ing Ade­laide city street cir­cuits, with stages 1 – 5 being held in region­al South Aus­tralia. The San­tos Tour Down Under pro­vides a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to the state’s tourism indus­try and show­cas­es the attrac­tions of South Aus­tralia to the world through glob­al tele­vi­sion coverage.

The San­tos Tour Down Under is owned and man­aged by Events South Aus­tralia, a divi­sion of the South Aus­tralian Tourism Com­mis­sion, on behalf of the South Aus­tralian Government.
