All the cycling action kicks off from 21 – 29 January with the Santos Festival of Cycling returning with an action-packed line-up of cycling and custom racing routes that showcase the best of South Australia. 

Kicking off on Friday 21 January with the Adelaide Track League event at Adelaide Superdome, the dynamic nine-day program offers more than 25 events and highlights multiple cycling disciplines including road, track, BMX, mountain biking, para-cycling and cyclo-cross.

An exciting 3-stage Men’s and Women’s road race will travel through South Australia’s picturesque Barossa, Adelaide Hills and Fleurieu Peninsula regions as Australia’s most elite cyclists battle for supremacy.

 The Santos Festival of Cycling will also offer an activity-packed day at the City of Adelaide Festival Village in Victoria Square/Tarntanyangga on the 26th January. The festival replaces the traditional UCI WorldTour, Santos Tour Down Under in 2022.

We continue to work closely and in accordance with SA Health and SAPOL to deliver a COVID-19-safe event for South Australians. Please see our COVID Safety page for the latest information and any changes.
