The People's Choice Classic was the perfect opportunity to see the world's best cyclists test their skills in the East End of Adelaide.
Held on the streets of Adelaide, the closed-circuit road race was a preview to the Santos Tour Down Under and set the tone for the week ahead.
In 2017, Caleb Ewan sprinted to victory on the streets of Adelaide to claim the People's Choice Classic winner jersey.

Podium presentations and a post-race FREE CONCERT featuring DJ Havana Brown were held in Park 15 (Ityamai Itpina) on the oval closest to Dequetteville Terrace after the race.
We thank the Adelaide City Council for hosting the People’s Choice Classic and for their invaluable contribution to the Santos Tour Down Under.
