The VTWO/CyclingTips Carpark Climb comes to the Tour Down Under

by CyclingTips

In March 2016, in a multi-story carpark in the heart of Melbourne, hundreds of cyclists and cycling fans gathered for a night of entertainment and some good, hard bike racing. The event pitted riders of all shapes and sizes against one another and the clock, as they battled their way up the spiralling ramps of that Flinders Lane carpark.

On Saturday January 21, the evening before the final stage of the Santos Tour Down Under, the carpark climb comes to Adelaide.  The organisers are expecting 2,000 spectators to attend — including a handful of TDU pros — to watch riders battle their way from ground level to the sixth story — a total of 12 challenging ramps.

The event details are as follows:

Date: Saturday January 21, 2017
Time: Racing starts 6:30pm
Location: Rundle Place Carpark, 90-100 Grenfell St, Adelaide
Distance from TDU event village: 850 metres
