7th Jacob's Creek Tour Down Under - 2.HC
Australia, January 18-23, 2005
Stage 1 - January 18: East End Adelaide Street Race, 50 km (7pm - approx 8.10pm)
Tens of thousands of people turn out annually for the frenzied action of stage one, as riders jostle for early race kudos at the stunning 2km Adelaide street circuit around Rymill Park.
Twenty-five nail-biting laps start and finish on Rundle Rd, with sprint points on offer at the 20km and 40km mark - just before the finish.
Get trackside early to ensure a good vantage point, and stay on after the race for presentations in Rymill Park and a bite to eat at some of Adelaide's best restaurants along Rundle St or East Terrace.
Because it's a small circuit, you'll get a top vantage point anywhere around
stage 1, and riders will be racing by every 2½ minutes. The crowds start
to gather hours before the race though, so get in early to save your spot.
