About

The History Trust of South Australia’s National Motor Museum in Birdwood will play host to your Stage 2 start line experience! Ticketholders will have the pleasure of free access to the museum’s exhibition halls and stunning grounds as the riders roll out for a challenging course through the Adelaide Hills. Once you’ve watched the race and explored the museum, kick back and watch the race on the big screen on the grassy museum grounds. The stage passes through some of the most heavily affected areas from the fires back in 2019. Women's race director Kimberley Conte says Stage 2 is "all about recovery." Both race directors were keen to take the race back into these beautiful areas a year on to show Australia how the recovery is tracking. This stage is all about positioning, riders need to be at the front on the gravel to avoid mayhem, well positioned for the start of the only climb of the day and to read the road ahead of them and to stay in a controlling position on the way to the finish. Men's race director Stuart O'Grady says, "This should be an action packed finale." Be sure to check out everything the Adelaide Hills has to offer - from incredible food and wine to amazing experiences. WOMEN'S START - 9:00 | MEN'S START - 13:30
