About the Bupa Challenge Tour

The Bupa Challenge Tour will be held on Friday 20 January 2017 from Norwood to Campbelltown.

The Bupa Challenge Tour is the Santos Tour Down Under's annual 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 will be 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 are four starting locations providing various challenges and cyclists are encouraged to tackle the ride that's right for them.
