16-26 January 2020 / Adelaide, Australia


About the Route

Cherryville is one of Adelaide's nicest-sounding townships. Fenhurst Road is its wire-in-the-blood. For 2.3 km you'll be in the 'red zone' of double-digit grades as you navigate four switchbacks out of a valley to the top of Cherryville on Montacute Road. Why has this climb never featured on the Santos Tour Down Under? Aside from the cruel punishment in an Australian summer this would present the peloton, it's actually accessible in one direction, so you need to descend the road before climbing back up it. The pros will breathe a sigh of relief for that, and you can too, in the knowledge you have to really, really want to ride down that road, in order to destroy your legs going back up.
