About the Stage

Hahndorf hosted the very beginning of the 11-day festival of cycling that was the 2020 Santos Tour Down Under. The peloton departed under a neutral parade lap before kicking into race-mode with a 116.3km stage which headed south to Echunga and then Macclesfield before completing an out-and-back from Meadows to Kuitpo before heading back to Echunga to complete a final circuit of Macclesfield-Meadows-Echunga. The race finished with a sprint in the main part of Macclesfield.


Remember when...

We last came here in 2019? It was a tricky little stage from Nairne to Stirling, notable for Mitchelton-Scott’s Grace Brown beating her fancied teammates to take the line comfortably.
