About the Bupa Challenge Tour
The 2017 Bupa Challenge Tour was held on Friday 20 January 2017 from Norwood to Campbelltown.
The Bupa Challenge Tour is the Santos Tour Down Under's annual mass-participation ride. It takes place on the morning of Bupa Stage 4, along the same route as the professional riders, just hours before the pros take to the road.
Participants of the Bupa Challenge Tour were given an exclusive Bupa Challenge Tour jersey to wear during the ride, a timing chip and unique rider number, as well as full mechanical and medical support during the ride.
There were four starting locations providing various challenges. Each year, cyclists are encouraged to tackle the ride that's right for them.
