About the Stage
The Schwalbe Classic is the traditional curtain-raiser to the Santos Tour Down Under and returned to the heart of Adelaide for the first time in years, with riders taking on a challenging 1.7km circuit through Adelaide's centre.
Starting outside Pilgrim Church on Flinders Street, the peloton turned into King William Street, through Victoria Square before turning left into Angas Street, then into Chancery Lane and right into Wakefield Street.
A left turn at Pulteney Street then swung the riders back onto Flinders for the long straight to the start/finish line.
