King of the Mountain

Challenge Tour participants 2019

In 2020, we will be introducing a timed segment into the Challenge Tour, where participants can choose to compete in our King of the Mountain segment, with prizes valued at $1,700 up for grabs! 

The winner for the King of the Mountain and Queen of the Mountain will also get to present the KOM stage jersey to the TDU KOM winner of Stage 4!

How it works

When registering for the Challenge Tour, participants can choose to opt in to receive a time for the King of the Mountain competitive segment. On Challenge Tour day, these participants will all receive a time from the bottom of the KoM to the top.

All riders starting at Norwood (start 1), Williamstown (start 2) and Mt Torrens (start 3) will be eligible to ride this segment.   

Once all riders have completed this segment during their Challenge Tour ride, we will get in touch with the winners at the finish line in Murray Bridge. There will be a male (King of the Mountain) and female (Queen of the Mountain) winner from each start for starts 1, 2 and 3.    

All winners will receive the following prizes:

  • King of the Mountain Jersey
  • Free entry into the Challenge Tour in 2021
  • Event Prize Pack

In addition to this, the male and female winners who have completed the full Challenge Tour distance from Norwood to Murray Bridge will get to go on stage and present the KOM stage jersey to the TDU KOM winner of Stage 4!*

Please see a link to the point to point and stage map here, indicating the KOM.

Please refer here for the Terms and Conditions for the King of the Mountain.

*Please note you must be available to present the KoM jersey at the presentations for Stage 4 of the Santos Tour Down Under
