For the first time, Brighton will host a stage start of the 2023 Santos Tour Down Under.

The elite cycling event, which draws participants and visitors from all around the world, is back after a two-year hiatus due to COVID, with Brighton chosen to host Oakley Stage 2 of the men's race on Thursday 19 January 2023.

The Tour Parade arrives at 10am with the riders to converge on Jetty Road by 10.30am.

The race will start on Jetty Road at 11.30am and the riders will ride south along the Esplanade, before making a left-hand turn at Wheatland Street. They'll turn right onto Brighton Road, bound for Victor Harbor.

“We are thrilled Brighton is hosting its first Santos Tour Down Under stage start,” said Santos Tour Down Under race director Stuart O’Grady.

“At 155.9km this is the longest of the Santos Tour Down Under’s five road stages. It’s set to be pivotal.”

The Santos Tour Down Under is taking place in Adelaide and regional South Australia from 13-22 January 2023. It will feature nine days of elite racing for men and women.
