Despite the cancellation of the men’s and women’s Tour Down Under in 2021 the race organisers are set to hold a four-day Santos Festival of Cycling (January 21-24). 

The men’s and women’s WorldTour teams will be sorely missed in Adelaide but Kimberly Conte, the organiser of the women’s Tour Down Under and now Santos Festival of Cycling, believes that the replacement event will provide a huge opportunity for the domestic riders in Australia to showcase their talents and enjoy a rare NRS opportunity after several other races were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
