January 13-20, 2019, Adelaide , Australia, Road - WorldTour

The 2019 Santos Tour Down Under will once again kick off the WorldTour season in Australia. The racing will begin with the People's Choice Classic on January 13 and the peloton will move straight into the stage race held from January 15 to 20 in and around Adelaide.

The climb of Willunga Hill will feature as the climax to the 2019 Tour Down Under, as the Australian UCI WorldTour event eschews its final 'Champs-Elysées-like' processional stage in favour of a 'queen stage' that should keep things exciting right to the very end.
