Stage 5: Saturday Jan 25, Willunga - Willunga , 147km

Live report    Results & report    Previous stage    Next stage

Start: 11am, Saturday 25 January

This circuit style road stage was introduced in 2002 and proved one of the most popular for spectators as it offers the opportunity to experience the excitement of the race several times from a roadside position.

Historic Willunga hosts the start and finish of the stage during which the race travels along the spectacular coastal road from Silver Sands to Port Willunga. Fans can cool off at Aldinga Beach or gourmets can experience the delights of the wine and food of McLaren Vale along with the chance to catch all the action as the riders contest the three-lap circuit.

Snapper Point offers bonuses in the SA Lotteries Sprint competition on laps two and three and a detour to Old Willunga Hill at the end of lap three will see the climbers vie for Laubman & Pank King of the Mountain points.
