New City Circuit for Santos Tour Down Under

Santos Tour Down UnderThe Santos Tour Down Under – the traditional season opener for the UCI WorldTour – will feature an all-new ‘People’s Choice Classic’ city circuit next year. The 50km course – effectively a preview for the following day’s Stage 1 – will see riders test their legs on a route that takes them over the River Torrens and through Adelaide’s parklands and the heart of the city, providing spectators with the opportunity to get closer to the action than previously possible.


Announcing the route for the January 19 race, Tourism Minister, Leon Bignell, said: ‘The People’s Choice Classic is always an exhilarating preview to the six-stage Santos Tour Down Under and in 2014 we’ll see riders start the closed-circuit race on Victoria Drive… with plenty of great vantage points for fans to enjoy the action while perhaps enjoying a picnic by the river.’


The 2014 Santos Tour Down Under will be held in Adelaide and regional South Australia from January 19–26 for further details see
