The Santos Tour Down Under is Australia's greatest cycling race, with a rich history as the highest-regarded and most popular bike race in the southern hemisphere.

In 2020, the event boasted an action-packed nine days of world-class cycling with gala dinners, street parties and an amazing atmosphere for riders and spectators, visitors and locals alike.

The event was first staged in 1999 with local rider Stuart O’Grady taking the win. Since then, numerous internationally renowned cyclists have joined the Honour Roll. Stuart O'Grady has now taken over as Race Director, so he's sure to have a spectacular tour planned for us in 2021!

Connect Sport Australia has been involved with the Santos Tour Down Under since 2014 when we ran the very first Beat Cancer Tour. This event was the only non-professional tour incorporated into the official Santos Tour Down Under event program. We offered riders the chance to ride the entire race route in front of the pro's each day, stay at the Hilton Adelaide, had a team mechanics workshop in the Tour Village next to the pro workshops, two Subaru team cars, a police escort and much more.

Since this event came to an end in 2017, we have continued to be involved in the TDU running various tours for the International Cycling Executives, Telstra and Santini.

Rest assured that our team will provide you with the very best cycling experience possible at the 2021 Santos Tour Down Under.

Our tour program will ensure you maximise every moment at the Santos Tour Down Under. You will not only have an amazing time on the bike, but you'll also have an awesome experience off the bike. Having been involved in the TDU for so many years we understand what our guests want from their time at the event. Sure, everyone wants to ride their bikes through some of the most picturesque countryside in Australia, but there is also so much to do and see off the bike.

Rather than only offering you a limited choice of tour options, we allow you to choose the tour package that is right for you and your budget. Our 9 and 8 day tours also offer you the option of staying at the Official Santos Tour Down Under hotel, the Hilton Adelaide. Imagine catching the lift at the end of the day with some of the world's best cyclists and talking to them about their day!

But if you'd prefer to save some money on accommodation you can also select a 4 Star hotel or a 3 Star hotel, all located in the Adelaide CBD, or even find your own accommodation.

So, choose your package, add additional experiences or products to your cart and build your own tailored tour.

But spots are limited and will fill up fast.

“I’m so thankful to have met Bade more than 5 years ago when his company Connect Sport were running the Beat Cancer Tour (BCT) that they had created as the official charity ride of the UCI Tour Down Under in South Australia. Apart from being a really nice guy he’s also an awesome rider and a brilliant planner, encourager, facilitator and coach. The planning, support, skill development and safety of the two BCT events I participated in were top shelf. In 2018 I also went on a Connect Sport tour to Japan and this has been a highlight of my overseas cycling tours. It was the cultural engagement with the Japanese that was as amazing as the incredible cycling. Bade is definitely an expert cycling tour operator and I am absolutely delighted to recommend him and his company Connect Sport”
