Tour Down Under LIVE coverage - Stage 5
Notes: (latest notes always appear at the top)
- Please visit our homepage for the latest Tour Down Under live coverage info. and archive video clips.
- This stage could be decisive but if not, we will finally have live streaming video (in some markets anyway) tomorrow for Stage 6 and it could come down to sprint bonuses.
- Stage 5 is underway. ABC Radio have placed a reporter on the Willunga climb which the riders will go up twice. They will check in regularly with race updates.
- ABC Radio Adelaide schedule lists the program, SA Grandstand with Peter Walsh and Roger Wills starting at 11am, same time as the race start. Walsh and Wills called the live action for the Cancer Council Classic, though they do not appear to be specialist cycling commentators and didn't sound like it last weekend. Anyway, this is a sports program so perhaps there will be more frequent updates from the race for Stage 5? On the other hand, there may be a lot more sport activities for them to cover since it's a Saturday. We'll see.
- Big Stage 5 starts in an hour, so riders will start going to sign in now.
- You can check in on Stage 3 coverage of the Tour of Wellington in New Zealand. (01:35, 3News). You may also be interested in video coverage you'll find of the Tour de San Luis in Argentina here. -Bernie S.
- The Tour Down Under Stage 5 from Snapper Point to Willunga begins at 11am local time Saturday. (01:30 CET Saturday, 7:30pm U.S. Eastern FRIDAY). The distance is 148km (92 miles).
- We will post and update new guides with the latest info and links each day of the race.
