Tour Down Under 2016

The 2016 WorldTour kicks off

The Santos Tour Down Under is Australia's only WorldTour cycling event and signals the launch of the international racing season, with many of the world's biggest names getting an early gauge of their form.

Traditionally, being the opening race on the calender, it's the first chance to see the latest gear and gadgets that the world's best will be using for the rest of the season. However, in some cases, it's also the last race for some beaten-up gear, that then gets sold-off to the public once the race is over.

For 2016, the Adelaide-based stage race will run between 17 to 24 January.
