Gallery: Crowds out in force at Tour Down Under

Stage 2 sees over 100,000 fans line the route

Early estimates from the race organisers suggest that up to 110,000 spectators turned out to watch stage 2 of the 2012 Santos Tour Down Under, which brought the peloton from Lobethal to Stirling. The home fans were given plenty to cheer about as Australia's Will Clarke staged a daring early breakaway and clung on to secure the stage win, UniSA's first in the race since 2008.

As ever at the Tour Down Under, the relationship between riders and fans if flourishing in South Australia, as seen in this Cyclingnews gallery.
