Hostworks Stage 1
Think South Australian wines and you surely think Barossa Valley, which makes for a pretty fitting location from which to start this year’s Santos Tour Down Under. Cyclists begin in the small town of Tanunda before cruising alongside some of the most iconic vineyards in the country, pushing up Checker Hill and then into Campbelltown for the finish.
Santos Tour Down Under Race Director Mike Turtur steps us through this stage.
