Photo gallery: Stage 5 of the 2017 Santos Tour Down Under

Richie Porte and Willunga Hill. It’s a relationship that’s defined the penultimate stage of the Tour Down Under since 2014. Today’s victory, Porte’s fourth consecutive on the hill, was perhaps his most impressive to date. He didn’t need to attack. He could have sat in and just followed the moves of his rivals, leaning on …

Photo gallery: Stage 4 of the 2017 Santos Tour Down Under

Four stages of the 2017 Santos Tour Down Under, three wins for Caleb Ewan (Orica-Scott). If you include the People’s Choice Classic criterium the equation is four from five.

Photo gallery: Stage 3 of the 2017 Santos Tour Down Under

Today’s breakaway group of four was the biggest of the Tour Down Under thus far. The quartet got up the road as BMC, Orica-Scott and others controlled the pace in the peloton.

Stage 1 of the Santos Tour Down Under was hot. 40ºC hot. Shorten-the-stage-by-more-than-20km hot. In the end the result was much the same as it might have been otherwise – victory for Caleb Ewan (Orica-Scott). He did the same thing 12 months ago, winning the same stage in the same town (Lyndoch). Ewan now wears …

Photo gallery: People’s Choice Classic at the 2017 Santos Tour Down Under

The 2017 Santos Tour Down Under began in Adelaide on Sunday evening with the People’s Choice Classic, a 50.6km circuit race and curtain-raiser to the six-day Tour. The People’s Choice Classic doesn’t affect the TDU’s general classification — instead it acts as a warm-up for those riding the TDU, and as a good early hit-out …
