Sporting Events

24 Jan 2022 Once Only Event

McLaren Vale to Echunga

In a historical first, the women will begin Westpac Stage 2 on the grounds of Penny’s Hill Winery in McLaren Vale.

The race will begin with 3km of neutral riding around Willunga before sprinting past Penny’s Hill, just 8kms into the stage.

Testing the legs early in the race, there’s a long climb early up Peters Creek Road through the Kuitpo Forest before descending into the Mt Barker area.

This stage will see riders trekking along 2.8-kilometer section of dirt and gravel through gumtrees and pine forests as it climbs towards the QOM at Prospect Hill.

Featuring a feed zone at the Meadows bakery – a favourite for cyclists -and a Sprint in Echunga, the race enters the most technical section of the day on its way to Hahndorf, the oldest German settlement in Australia and a popular tourist destination.

The course undulates and turns its way back towards the finish line with another opportunity for the sprinters to finish strong in Echunga.
