About the Stage

Hahndorf will host the very beginning of the 11-day festival of cycling that is the Santos Tour Down Under. The peloton will depart under a neutral parade lap before kicking into race-mode with a 116.3km stage which heads south to Echunga and then Macclesfield before completing an out-and-back from Meadows to Kuitpo before heading back to Echunga to complete a final circuit of Macclesfield-Meadows-Echunga. The race finishes with a sprint in the main part of Macclesfield.

Remember when?

We last came here in 2019? It was a tricky little stage from Nairne to Stirling, notable for Mitchelton-Scott’s Grace Brown beating her fancied teammates to take the line comfortably.

Vantage point 

With three passes through Echunga and Macclesfield (including the finish in ‘Maccy’), you’ll see plenty of fast-paced cycling on the opening Thursday.
