The Barossa hosts the start of the Santos Tour Down Under, but this time fans will have the opportunity to see the peloton pass five times throughout the day. Ziptrak® Stage 1 will start and finish in Tanunda, with a large 30km circuit connecting Bethany, Angaston, Penrice and Nuriootpa.
Then-Under 23 Australian time trial champion Damien Howson and world road champion Phillippe Gilbert led an early breakaway from Modbury to Tanunda on the third stage of 2013? Like most Barossa stages, the break was swamped by the peloton, with André Greipel winning a record 13th stage of the race.
You’re spoilt for choice on Ziptrak® Stage 1, with five loops of every part of the circuit. Of course Tanunda gifts a start and finish, but whether it’s there or other nearby towns like Nuriootpa and Angaston, you’ll be able to see a whole lot of the WorldTour cyclists.
