The TDU is BACK

The first race of the 2023 UCI World Tour calendar, the Tour Down Under, is here and we can’t wait to have racing back in Australia.

The Tour has been on hiatus for the last few years whilst Australia has been working to open up it’s borders and we can’t wait to see the the men’s and women’s teams race their way through the Adelaide hills.

This will be the first international race for Brodie Chapman in her new team colours and we can’t wait to be cheering her road side.

In celebration of theTour Down Under, Brodie pulled together some of our favourite South Australian routes.

Find all these rides in the FulGaz App.
