efex Men's Stage 2: Norwood - Lobethal
ABOUT efex Men's Stage 2
It’s all on the table for efex Men’s Stage 2. This 141.6-kilometre stage leaves from inner-suburban Norwood and winds into the Adelaide Hills, with the first efex King of the Mountain to be contested at Ashton. From there the riders will travel through Summertown and Balhannah before the day’s first Ziptrak sprint at Woodside.
Three 35-kilometre loops through Lobethal are next, including two passes of the Fox Creek climb. This ascent may be short, but its maximum gradient of 17.8 per cent will test even the toughest quads. More sprint points are on offer before Lobethal hosts the stage finish – one where anything is possible.
