Santos Tour Down Under 2021 – Event Update 7 November 2020
Unfortunately the Santos Tour Down Under will not go ahead in 2021. Cycling will however be present in the streets of Adelaide and regional South Australia, with a smaller domestic cycling festival to take its place in January 2021.
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.
This 11-day event brings the world’s best male and female cyclists 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 ProSeries event, which also attracts the cream of female cycling to Adelaide.
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 race typically starts and concludes with exciting Adelaide city street circuits, with stages held in regional South Australia.
