Bupa Stage 4
When – Friday 23rd January
Distance – 144.5km
Route – Starts in Glenelg and finishes in Mt Barker
This is a great day for the pros as well as the people, with literally thousands of age groupers participating in a mass ride from the beachside area of Glenelg, up the hard-slog Sellicks Hill, through two sprint sections in Ashbourne and Macclesfield before making it to the finish line. This is a great day for riders who really want to feel a part of the race – is there a better motivation to keep pace than knowing a professional peloton is catching your tail?
Santos Tour Down Under Race Director Mike Turtur explains the course.
