Sporting Events

10 Jan 2019 to 20 Jan 2019

The Santos Tour Down Under was first held in 1999 and has grown year on year to become the biggest cycling race in the southern hemisphere.

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 best riders in the world to compete in the best races.

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 and showcases South Australia to the world through global television coverage.
