The Tour Down Under is the premier cycling race in Australia. Raced over six stages each year, the event sees some of the biggest names in the sport head to the country.
It’s raced in South Australia, with all of the stages starting and finishing within two hours drive of Adelaide.
It also features a criterium classic, which is raced on the Sunday night before the race itself begins.
The 2021 edition was cancelled due to border closure complications arising from COVID-19 outbreaks elsewhere in the country.
Australia’s Richie Porte won the Tour Down Under in 2020, with a time of 20 hours, 37 minutes and eight seconds. Italy’s Diego Ulissi and Germany’s Simon Geschke rounded out the podium, while reigning back-to-back champion Daryl Impey finished sixth.
