Women’s Tour Down Under 2023 – The Essential Preview

For many years now, the women’s racing at the Tour Down Under has had the look and feel of Women’s WorldTour event – ​​top teams, high-level organisation, live coverage and prize money that matched the men’s event. This year as it returns to the UCI calendar after two years of absence, it has finally got the classification to reflect that reality.

The women’s Santos Tour Down Under, with the Schwalbe Classic as the curtain raiser on Saturday, January 14, will deliver Australia’s first-ever Women’s WorldTour stage race from Monday, January 15 to Tuesday, January 17 and its lifted status – and points on offer – to help provide a continued incentive for top tier teams to make the trip to Australia in January amid what is becoming an increasingly loaded calendar of women’s racing.
