Barely a month into 2016 and we are already getting excited for the first race of the year! Preparation is key for riders as they begin to think about embarking on the Tour Down Under in Adelaide – but we must be well-prepared too! If you are a little behind, fear not as here at PBK there’s a healthy range of offers specific to the Tour, featuring Santini kit, stage jerseys and some exclusives.
Having been first held in 1999, the The Tour Down Under joined the UCI World Tour Event in 2008 as the first road cycling race to be held outside of Europe – cycling’s traditional location.
Between the 16th and the 24th January, 20 teams from across the world will battle it out over 6 stages cycling across Adelaide with a number of jerseys awarded after each stage as well as to the overall winner.
Not only will there be nine days of world-class cycling at the southern Hemisphere’s biggest cycling race, but the event will also be graced with gala dinners, street parties and entertainment. – a jam-packed and buzzing atmosphere for everyone involved!
Let’s not forget the Women’s Tour Down Under, from the 16th – 19th January which is now a UCI 2.2 class event as well as part of Cycling Australia’s Subaru National Road Series (NRS) – an exciting addition to world cycling!
