SPORTING THRILLS ON WHEELS RETURNING FOR SANTOS FESTIVAL OF CYCLING
The best of Australian cycling is set to return once again to South Australia from January 21 – 29 at the Santos Festival of Cycling 2022. Cycling enthusiasts, locals and visitors alike will watch as elite cyclists travel through some of the state’s most scenic backdrops during the action-packed nine-day event.
The festival replaces the traditional UCI WorldTour, Santos Tour Down Under in 2022, which cannot go ahead due to international border closures and associated quarantine requirements for visiting international teams, but retains an elite profile.
The Santos Tour Down Under is the first stop for the world's best cycling teams and riders, as the opening race of the UCI WorldTour.
Some of the very best in road cycling have competed at the Santos Tour Down Under during its history. Tour de France winners Oscar Pereiro, Andy Schleck, Alberto Contador and Carlos Sastre have all raced in Adelaide, alongside Aussie legends Simon Gerrans, Stuart O’Grady, Robbie McEwen, Cadel Evans and Allan Davis.
