Media Centre

As Australia’s premier cycling event, the Santos Tour Down Under commands attention, with its status on the Union Cycliste International (UCI) world cycling calendar ensuring the best teams and riders from around the globe compete each year to start the cycling season.

Surrounding the men's and women's races is the Santos Festival of Cycling, which offers ten days of entertainment and action on and off the bike.

The 2019 Santos Tour Down Under attracted a record 48,000 visitors from interstate and overseas who travelled specifically to South Australia for the event, generating an economic impact of $70.7M, creating the equivalent of 837 full time jobs.

The 22nd year of the Santos Tour Down Under will be staged in and around Adelaide, South Australia, from 16 to 26 January 2020. The Santos Women’s Tour Down Under race will start the event on 16 January 2020.

We look forward to welcoming media from all platforms, with a passion for cycling, adventuring, and tourism from all around Australia and the world to South Australia once again for the race in 2020.
