On stage 6 of Jacob's Creek Tour Down Under, young riders aged 8-14 can take to the course and see some of it from their own eyes, before watching their cycling heroes race. A 'hot dog' loop up and down the finishing straight on King William Road will be open for up to 300 children for half an hour (10:45-11:15am). The Powerade mini tour for kids for kids only, no parents allowed! Who knows - one of them could be the next Stuart O'Grady or Robbie McEwen, but he/she will still need a mechanically sound bicycle, a helmet in good condition and sunscreen.

Participants will need to sign in with their parent/guardian from 9.00-10.30am. Each participant must wear the official 2005 Powerade mini-tour for kids t-shirt, available at the Bicycle SA registration desk in the Powerade canopy. Line up commences at 10:30am and the half hour ride kicks off at 10:45am.

To register online, go to www.bikesa.asn.au or complete and send the registration form to Bicycle SA by 5pm on Friday, January 21. It costs only $15 to register online (normal registration is $20). Please note that once registration forms are sent in, T-shirt sizes cannot be exchanged.

The registration includes: Exclusive kids t-shirt, Powerade drinks, goodie bag, participation certificate, mechanical back-up and support as well as supervision by experienced adult ride leaders.
