The Parade, Norwood, SA
Friday 24 January | 11:00am
From humble beginnings in 1999, the TDU has grown to be one of Australia’s premier sporting events, taking the fastest men and women in the world through some of the most iconic regions of SA. It is more than just a bike race, it is a festival of cycling, with a range of associated events and participation rides that create a massive party atmosphere.
Mike Turtur, Race Director, Santos Tour Down Under said Norwood has remained a popular location as a stage start, with this year marking the 14th year of TDU involvement.
“Norwood provides a relaxing setting for the start of Stage 4. Given the number of years of TDU involvement, the riders know what to expect from a Norwood start and it is always great to see the crowds come out in force to cheer them on,” said Turtur.
“This year we are expecting even more of a crowd as family and friends of Challenge Tour participants join the crowd.”
“The race departs Norwood and continues to Williamstown which will host a sprinters stage. The King of the Mountain will be staged at Mount Torrens for the first time in Men’s TDU history which will be exciting to watch.”
The Santos Tour Down Under will be staged 16-26 January 2020.
The 2020 Santos Tour Down Under today announced the Challenge Tour presented by The Advertiser will be held on the fourth stage of next year’s event.
Reverting back to a Friday schedule, after being held on a Saturday in 2019, the 2020 Challenge Tour will host four staggered starts along the route. The event will be held on Friday January 24, taking riders from Norwood to Murray Bridge via a host of popular towns within the Adelaide Hills region.
Race Director, Mike Turtur has designed a challenging Stage 4 of the Santos Tour Down Under not only for the professional cyclists but also for the thousands of cycling enthusiasts expected to register in the 2020 Challenge Tour.
