Tour Down Under 2017 Route stage 6: Criterium in Adelaide
Sunday, 22 January 2017 - The 2017 Tour Down Under concludes with a 90 kilometres criterium in the streets of Adelaide. Like it did last year, when Caleb Ewan sprinted to victory.
Tackling twenty laps on a 4.5 kilometres circuit, the riders are battling it out in the heart of Adelaide. If the GC is not a foregone matter the race will be extra thrilling since the first three riders on the line take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds. Moreover, intermediate sprints come with time bonuses of 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
Start and finish of the last stage are at King William Street, while riders eyeing op the KOM-classification should be wide awake at Montefiore Hill. On the top of the short 2.53% climb KOM-points are to be gained in the tenth and fifteenth lap.
In recent years, the Santos Tour Down Under saw a bunch sprint on the final day. In 2013 and 2014 it was André Greipel outpowering the pack, while Drapac’s Dutchman Wouter Wippert sprinted to victory in 2015. In 2016 Caleb Ewan took the win ahead of Mark Renshaw and Giacomo Nizzolo.
The 6th and final stage of the Tour Down Under leaves at 13:30 and is expected to finish at around 15:30 – both local times.
