Victor Harbor secures the Stage 3 finish for the 2018 Santos Tour Down Under

Victor Harbor is set to host a stage finish in the 2018 Santos Tour Down Under.

The race routes for next year’s event were announced in Adelaide yesterday, with the City of Victor Harbor named as the host of the Stage 3 finish on 18 January 2018.

City of Victor Harbor Mayor Graham Philp said securing the Stage 3 finish is a real win for Victor Harbor.

“Not only does the Santos Tour Down Under promote Victor Harbor to a worldwide audience, it brings a great energy and atmosphere to our city,” said Mayor Philp.

“The Stage 3 finish at last year’s event was a great success. Spectators enjoyed the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the professional cyclists up to four times, and there was a fantastic vibe in our town centre.”

“We look forward to working with the Santos Tour Down Under event team to deliver yet another successful event in 2018.”

Mike Turtur, Race Director, Santos Tour Down Under said that Victor Harbor is a popular location for a stage finish with the seaside town attracting families on holiday who come out and support the race.

“After the success of this circuit in 2017, we have retained as part of the Stage 3 race route the 13km finishing circuit with three laps along The Esplanade.”

City of Victor Harbor Mayor Graham Philp encouraged the community to start thinking about how they can use the event to their advantage.

“Local businesses and community groups should start thinking about how they can get involved and host their own race day event to further add to the great atmosphere in Victor Harbor,” said Mayor Philp.

The 2018 Santos Tour Down Under will be held from Saturday 13 January until Sunday 21 January. Visit www.tourdownunder.com.au for all the details.
