It’s the last stage of the 2014 Tour Down Under and it’s always one of the most popular.
The course has changed this year due to the area surrounding Adelaide Oval being off limits due to the Australia Day ODI, but the new circuit promises to be just as good.
There are 18 laps of a 4.75 kilometre circuit for a total of 85.5 kilometres. The Adam Internet sprint point is set up on Bartels Road and will be contested on laps 6, 12 and 18.
Rymill Park will be very popular, as the race skirts around the Park in it’s entirety, while Flinders Street will see the riders travel on both sides of the road, meaning you can catch them going past a whopping 36 times.
The Tour Village is also sure to be popular, as the race will go past the eastern edge of the Village in Victoria Square.
This stage is always packed, and the circuit this year is smaller than previous years, so getting there early will be the key. If you are there early, there will be no shortage of prime viewing positions, but if you get there too late you won’t be able to see much.
Once the race is finished, the presentation podium will be set up in Rymill Park and the Tour Down Under will officially close for another year.
Usually after the presentations most fans head to Rundle Street, and while many still will this year, the race also travels near Gouger Street this year and it’s packed full of fantastic places to eat.
