About the Stage

Stage 4 sets out from Norwood under neutral before commencing the popular ascent into the Adelaide Hills via Gorge Road. This stage is straightforward and will suit a sprint finish.

After the Gorge Road climb, riders will traverse a lumpy profile to Kersbrook before ascending to Williamstown and veering south to Mount Pleasant.

The final 5.4% climb at Mount Torrens is a reasonable 5.4% average, and is the curtain-raiser to a downhill out of the Hills and to the Murray River, where riders hit Mannum before pushing out the final 30km to finish in Murray Bridge.

Remember when?

The Tour finished in Murray Bridge? If you can, count yourself among the top fanatics of Australia’s Greatest Cycling Race – because that was way back in 2001 when Italian Fabio Sacchi (Saeco Macchine Per Caffé) claimed honours at the line in a sprint finish. 2020 will be the first time the town has hosted a finish of the race as a WorldTour event.

Vantage point 

Whether driving or riding, Cudlee Creek is the place to start your day. Watch the first Ziptrak® Sprint here before shortcutting to Mount Torrens to catch the only Subaru KOM of the day, depending on your mode of transport, that should give you time to head to the finish at Murray Bridge.
