About the Stage

The Adelaide Hills are the most frequented region of the Santos Tour Down Under and once again the race will host several passes, the first commencing with Novatech Stage 2 from Woodside to Stirling. The peloton will complete four loops of Woodside and surrounds, including two ascents of Quarry Road for points in Charleston.

On the fourth circuit the riders will deviate east towards Oakbank and Balhannah before the very gradual descent towards Mylor via Hahndorf. Here, the peloton will hit the popular ‘hills circuit’ connecting Mylor, Aldgate, Stirling and Heathfield four times before a sprint finish in the main Stirling township.

Remember when?

Will Clarke soloed to victory in Stirling? The Tasmanian was then wearing the colours of UniSA-Australia and broke from the start with Martin Kohler (BMC), who eventually conserved his energy and retreated back to the peloton, allowing the Aussie to open more than seven minutes of buffer with one lap to go of the hills circuit. It was a famous win.

Vantage point 

If the bustle of Stirling isn’t for you, you’ll be able to catch plenty of racing action elsewhere on this stage. Heathfield will feature a quick downhill run which counts for Ziptrak® intermediate sprint points on two occasions. Woodside will also enjoy four passes, which will give you a great opportunity to assess a break should one unfold.
