The Tour Down Under sets off from Tanunda. The 1st stage is a criterium race in the Barossa Valley with a likely sprint finish at the same place as it started.
The 2nd stage travels from Woodside to a false flat finish in Stirling. The route consists of two local laps and the elevation gain is 2,357 metres.
At 131 kilometres, the 3rd stage is likely to open up the first proper time gaps on GC. Following a race with 2,614 vertical metres the finish climb into Paracombe is 1.2 kilometres long and slopes at 9.9%. The last 300 metres are played out on the flat.
The Tour Down Under serves a lumpy race with a flat finale on stage 4. The route runs from Norwood to Murray Bridge, where the Australian stage race did not finish since 2001.
The 5th stage of the Tour Down Under travels from Glenelg to a technical finale in Victor Harbor. Sprinters should also be aware of a 3.9 kilometres climb at 6%, which is crested with 20 kilometres to go.
Willunga Hill is on the agenda on the final day of action. The 6th stage is a carbon copy of last year’s final test. The route takes in two circuits, while the finale serves the 3 kilometres climb at 7%. Richie Porte has been imperious on Willunga Hill in the last six editions.
