Escape route

Bupa Stage 4 of the Santos Tour Down Under is designed to test the professionals, as well as be a challenge for recreational riders. While most Bupa Challenge Tour riders will be capable of tackling their chosen distance, all riders have the option to take the Escape Route, which will detour around the ŠKODA King of the Mountain at Myponga Dam.

Riders are encouraged to opt for the Escape Route if they are unsure about completing the ŠKODA King of the Mountain.  Riders must be cautious and ride within their abilities, taking into consideration the weather and other factors. The Escape Route will be signposted and the Bupa Challenge Tour officials and event vehicles will regularly check this route.
