The Santos Tour Down Under is Australia’s greatest cycling race and the largest festival of cycling in the southern hemisphere, bringing the best international riders to Adelaide each January.

As South Australia’s most significant sporting event, the race delivers world-class cycling for men (a six-day UCI WorldTour race) and women (a three-day UCI WorldTour race) to local, national and international audiences.

The 2023 Santos Tour Down Under made history as the first women’s stage race in the southern hemisphere at UCI Women’s WorldTour level.

A program of associated events surrounds the race with a festival hub, street parties, participation rides and eating and drinking experiences in Adelaide’s CBD and regions.

The 2023 Santos Tour Down Under saw 216 world-class athletes from 27 nationalities competing at the highest level and showcased South Australia to millions around the world.

This event provides a great boost to South Australia’s visitor economy, creating the equivalent of 776 full-time jobs for the state in 2023.
