Santos Tour Down Under: Pre-tour Challenges

Think you have what it takes to ride a stage of the Santos Tour Down Under?

With the 2013 Bupa Challenge Tour in Adelaide on January 25 you can ride the official route only hours before the pros have their go.

To be ready for it, take on one of our Pre-Tour Challenges on Strava from Wednesday November 7th to Wednesday December 5th (that's 4 weeks). You'll have the chance to hit the challenge with all that you have.

Give it your all once, go for it twice, or attempt it as many times as you can. Just go out and give it your best so that you’re ready for the 2013 Santos Tour Down Under!

There are Segment Challenges in most capital cities, so find one nearest you and use Strava to track your times.  You never know you might earn the coveted title of Strava King or Queen of your city’s segment.
