Santos Tour Down Under aims for biggest crowds yet

South Australians are being urged to be part of the biggest sporting crowd in the State's history when the 20th Santos Tour Down Under begins next week.

The action-packed nine-day event will put South Australia on show to the world as the biggest cycling names battle it out through the city, suburbs and some of the State’s most picturesque vineyards, hills and seaside towns.

Teams from all around the world have arrived in Adelaide and are already hitting the roads as part of their training, including superstars Peter Sagan, Andre Greipel, Richie Porte and Caleb Ewan.

The action begins tomorrow with the newly upgraded UCI 2.1 classification Santos Women’s Tour Down Under, which will see elite international and Australian female cyclists battle it out across four exciting stages.

The official opening of the Santos Tour Down Under will take place on Saturday 13 January in the City of Adelaide Tour Village in Victoria Square.
