Stage 3: Unley - Stirling, 132.5 km

This is one of the most picturesque stages in the Tour Down Under, taking riders along the coast, through McLaren Vale and part of its wine region before heading over to the leafy town of Stirling.

Wickhams Hill Rd is another section of the day's parcours with the potential to be a launching pad for a break that fancies its chances on the undulating run to Stirling; as the stage profile suggests, there's plenty of variation in the terrain in the second half of the 132.5km.
