Stage 5 of the 2017 Tour Down Under sees the peloton tackle the brutal-yet-annual Willunga Hill stage, which has been a major part of the race for the majority of the races existence.
Stage 4 from Norwood to Campbelltown will be a lumpy affair, with the road consistently going up and down all day, before finishing in what should be another bunch sprint.
The traditional sprint finish down into Victor Harbor marks Stage 3 of the 2017 Tour Down Under.
While the stage finishing atop of Willunga Hill is considered to be the ‘Queen stage’ of the Santos Tour Down Under, Stage 2 from Stirling to the hilltop finish in Paracombe may be the most difficult one that race director Mike Turtur has ever produced.
Stage 1 of the Tour Down Under sees the sprinters get their first chance to shine, with the parcours favouring a bunch finsih. However, with some lumps in the final half, some of the pure sprinters may struggle.
The Australian cycling season has been underway for two weeks before we see the European riders join them for the first World Tour race of the year, the Santos Tour Down Under.
