The 2019 Tour Down Under
The 2019 Tour Down Under started on 10 January and continues over six stages, with 908km of riding, which will climax on 20 January on the Willunga Hill climb.
The 1.5km climb is usually a feature of the penultimate stage, so it will be interesting to see how moving it to the final stage will impact the race results.
There was also a fair amount of climbing on Stage 3 to Uraidla — 3,337m / 10,948ft in fact.
