Women's Tour Down Under information

The Women's Tour Down Under is the opening event of the Women's World Tour for a second time in 2024, with the three-stage race first joining the top tier in 2023 after returning from a two year absence due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The race in and around Adelaide during the Australian summer traditionally delivers short but varied stages in sweltering conditions and has proved a popular target for the home-nation riders as they get a rare opportunity to race in front of family and friends.

Australians have dominated the winners list, with Grace Brown taking the leader's ochre jersey in 2023 and Amanda Spratt claiming the win from 2017 to 2019. Ruth Edwards (nee Winder), however, proved an exception in 2020 with the American taking the top step. 

All three former winners will be returning to the race in 2024.

In a step that is bound to invigorate the fans, the final winner of the Women's Tour Down Under will for the first time be decided on top of Willunga Hill, an iconic climb of the men's race.
