Bupa Challenge Tour

The Bupa Challenge Tour is the Santos Tour Down Under's annual mass-participation ride. 

It takes place on the Friday morning of Bupa Stage 4 along the same route as the professional riders, just hours before the pros take to the road.

Participants of the Bupa Challenge Tour were given an exclusive Bupa Challenge Tour jersey to wear during the ride, a timing chip and unique rider number, as well as full mechanical and medical support during the ride.

There are four starting locations each year, providing various challenges. Each year, cyclists are encouraged to tackle the ride that's right for them. 

Stay tuned for the 2018 start locations and join thousands of cycling fans for the ride of your life!
