WELCOME
WELCOME TO THE 2019 CHALLENGE TOUR
PRESENTED BY THE ADVERTISER
Congratulations on registering to be a part of the Challenge Tour
presented by The Advertiser, part of the Subaru Breakaway Series, the
official recreational ride program of the 2019 Santos Tour Down Under.
This event is a unique opportunity to ride the Stage 5 route of the
Santos Tour Down Under, the same route on the same day as the
world’s elite riders.
With all riders in 2019 finishing in Strathalbyn, participants will ride one of
four distances including 158.7km from Glenelg, 102.0km from Myponga,
60.0km from Victor Harbor and 34.5km from Goolwa.
Whether you are taking part on your own or as part of a team, you can
look forward to a fun and challenging ride. It’s a great way to see some of
the best parts of South Australia, enjoying a chat with your fellow riders
and perhaps even setting a goal to beat your personal best time.
This ride guide is your handbook to the Challenge Tour. It contains helpful
information about the four ride options, car parking, transport and
refreshment stations as well as emergency procedures to help you enjoy
the ride safely.
This guide has been designed as an easy reference manual, so remember
to read it before event day and print any pages you want to take along with
you to the event.
On behalf of the Santos Tour Down Under we wish you the best of luck
riding your challenge on Saturday 19 January 2019.
Enjoy the ride!

                                                                              5

TRAINING TIPS WITH UNISA
Preparing for the Santos Tour Down Under’s Challenge Tour presented
by The Advertiser means ensuring bodies, as well as bikes, are ready.
Professor Timothy Olds, from the University of South Australia’s School of
Health Sciences, shares some well-evidenced advice.

IT WON’T HAPPEN OVERNIGHT
Preparation for any event should start with general long-term fitness.
“There are guidelines recognised around the world now suggesting adults
should get 150 to 300 minutes physical activity a week,” Professor Olds
says. “So that’s 30 minutes to an hour, five days a week, every week. For
the rest of your life.”
That means jumping on the saddle sooner rather than later to increase
your fitness and endurance well before the Challenge Tour arrives. Even
short rides to and from work make all the difference!

MORNING OR EVENING?
Regarding when you train, Professor Olds notes a few trade-offs might be
needed.
“The best time to train to form a habit is the morning; but the best time in
terms of performance is the afternoon. In terms of fitness benefit, it makes
no difference.”
You may decide to set the alarm an hour earlier tomorrow or leave the
office sooner (if you can) to add the kilometres in.

WIND IN HAIR
Training may be about preparing for the Challenge Tour, but there’s no
reason you shouldn’t enjoy it too.
“There’s a pretty strong body of evidence people are happier training
outside, rather than indoors,” Professor Olds says.

OFFICIAL RIDE GUIDE TOURDOWNUNDER.COM.AU - Santos Tour Down Under
TRAINING TIPS WITH UNISA
So, boost your happiness by basking in the sunshine while you ride your
bike and keep the indoor training for those chilly winter weeks.

LONE WOLF OR TEAM PLAYER?
Grab your friends and set the dates for your group rides.
“There is also very strong evidence that people who exercise with social
support, whether that’s in a group or with a partner, are much more likely
to stick to their routine,” says Professor Olds.
You’ll also be able to celebrate your achievement at the finish line together,
making it twice as sweet.

TAPERING OFF
Finally, know when enough is enough.
“The week before the event, reduce your training load dramatically,” says
Professor Olds.
“Carbohydrate loading, a super-high carb meal the days before the event,
used to be very popular. Nowadays endurance athletes tend to have a high
carb diet generally leading up to the event.”

                                                                             7

INDIVIDUAL JERSEY AND ID TAG COLLECTION
Individual participants can collect their jersey and ID tag at any of the pre-
event check-in sessions listed above. Please bring your booking number
and personal ID with you.
Individual jerseys, which have not been collected at one of the pre-event
check-in sessions, can be collected at your nominated start location on
ride day.

GENERAL INFORMATION
TEAM JERSEY AND ID TAG COLLECTION
A team representative must collect ALL the team jerseys at either the
Saturday or Monday pre-event check-in sessions and distribute them to
each team member, before commencing the ride.
Unless previously arranged in writing, team jerseys will NOT be available
for collection on Wednesday, Friday or the morning of the ride.

CHALLENGE TOUR ID TAG
You will receive an official ID tag at check-in. This ID tag is not just your
entry to the event, it is your unique identification, providing us with vital
information to be used in the event of a serious accident or an emergency.
For this reason, your ID tag is NOT transferable and MUST be clearly visible
at all times throughout the ride. Using someone else’s tag compromises
our ability to render assistance in the case of a serious incident and may
result in miscommunication to your loved ones.
Your official ID tag will record your ride time. Your time will be published
online after the ride.

JERSEY SWAP
On Friday 18 January 2019 between 4:30pm and 6:00pm participants may
attempt to swap their jersey with other participants, or with any spare
jerseys. The jersey swap location will be in the Challenge Tour registration
marquee in the City of Adelaide Tour Village. Please note the jersey must
NOT be worn and jerseys with team names cannot be swapped. Sizes are
subject to availability.

NO JERSEY, NO ID TAG = NO RIDE
You MUST wear the official 2019 Challenge Tour jersey or 2019 Ride for a
Reason jersey for the duration of the ride and you MUST display your ID
tag, as this identifies you as a participant of the event.
You will not be able to participate in the ride without both of these.
No Jersey and ID Tag = No Ride
                                                                               9
OFFICIAL RIDE GUIDE TOURDOWNUNDER.COM.AU - Santos Tour Down Under
GENERAL INFORMATION
Security will be enforcing that all participants have on display their
ID tag and are wearing the official jersey. Failure to comply with both
requirements will exclude you from starting, entering refreshment stops,
closed roads and riding under the finish arch.
The event has ordered jerseys based on your specified size at the time you
registered. It may be possible for you to swap your Challenge Tour jersey
with another registered rider before the event by attending the Jersey
Swap (refer to the previous page).

CLOAKROOM
A complimentary cloakroom transfer service is available to all participants.
Please locate the cloakroom vehicle at your start location to check-in your
items. There will be a cloak collection point at the finish in Strathalbyn.

MECHANICAL SUPPORT
Mechanics will be available at all start locations and refreshment stops en-
route to assist with any unexpected mechanical issues. A limited number
of replacement products will be available at a small cost.
Should you experience difficulties and you are unable to get to one of
the designated locations please call the Challenge Tour call centre on
(08) 8463 4760 and they can arrange to get you to a mechanic. Please
rest your bike upside down on its saddle beside the road so that support
personnel can recognise you need help.

SWEEP VEHICLE SUPPORT
In the event of an accident or breakdown, sweep vehicle officials will
endeavour to transport you and your bike to the nearest refreshment stop
or to the finish where you may receive assistance.
Sweep vehicles travel the entire route and will stop for you if they see your
bike resting on its saddle, but we advise you to call the Challenge Tour call
centre on (08) 8463 4760, as we will be monitoring our sweeps and can best
direct a driver to you.

GENERAL INFORMATION
KEEPING HYDRATED
Heat exhaustion can be avoided by following these simple tips:
• Drink enough fluid to replace your sweat.
• Refill your water bottle at every opportunity.
• Remind your friends and team members to drink.
• Don’t ignore the signs of heat exhaustion: dizziness, fatigue, weakness,
  headache, nausea, unsteadiness, rapid pulse or shortness of breath.
• Call for assistance if you or your friend is suffering from any one of
  these heat exhaustion symptoms or seek medical assistance at a
  refreshment station.

HOW MUCH FLUID DOES YOUR BODY NEED DURING EXERCISE?
Before: Always start your ride well hydrated. Drink 300-500mL of fluid in
the 15 minutes prior to your ride.
During: Aim to drink 150-250mL every 15 minutes to offset fluid losses –
drinking smaller volumes more frequently minimises stomach discomfort.
Remember, the more you sweat, the more you need to drink. South
Australia’s dry climate means that you will probably sweat more than you
are aware of.
After: How much fluid you need depends on how much you lose. Try to
drink 1L of water for every hour of exercise.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DRINK?
Don’t overlook water as a great fluid choice and it is easily accessible.
Sports drinks are suitable during and after longer, higher intensity rides
such as the Challenge Tour, as they contain carbohydrates (4-8%) and
electrolytes to aid fluid absorption. Carbohydrates provide an added energy
source and electrolytes replace salts lost in sweat.

GENERAL INFORMATION
MEDICAL ASSISTANCE
St John Ambulance Event Health Services staff will be keeping you
safe at this event. If you need assistance they can be found en-route at
refreshment stops as well as at the finish in Strathalbyn.
St John Ambulance is a not for profit organisation supporting the
community with First Aid and Healthcare services at events such as the
Santos Tour Down Under and the Challenge Tour. You can support St John
in a variety of ways – to find out how to get involved visit stjohnsa.com.au

SA Ambulance Service has also been engaged to assist with medical
situations on the Challenge Tour. Event Management recommends that all
cyclists insure themselves for Personal Accident, Ambulance Cover, and
travel (if applicable) suitable for their needs.

16   TOURDOWNUNDER.COM.AU
ROAD RULES FOR ALL CYCLISTS
The Challenge Tour is an open public road event meaning you will be
sharing the road with other traffic.
You must obey ALL South Australian Road Rules.
The South Australia Police will be patrolling the route. Any riders who
breach the road rules may be fined.
• All participants MUST wear an approved Australian Standards bicycle
  helmet.
• All riders are required to install adequate lights to their bicycles and
  illuminate their lights pre-sunrise.
• Ride in single file where possible and no more than two abreast at any time.
• Pass only in single file, and only on the right of other riders.
• Move to the left to allow motor vehicles to overtake.
• Be aware of your fellow riders and other traffic. Indicate and call out your
  intention to slow down, stop or change direction.
• When climbing DO NOT zig zag and do not cross the white line in the centre
  of the road. If you need to walk do so on the far-left hand side of the road.
• Do not use MP3 players / iPods / mobile phones or headphones whilst
  riding.
• Obey the course marshals’ directions – they are there for your safety.
• Be sociable and safe.
• Private support vehicles are not permitted en-route. Vehicles belonging to
  family and friends must use an alternative route to the finish.

MOVE OVER FOR THE PROS
The Santos Tour Down Under UCI WorldTour race is held under a
complete road closure. If you are still on the route when the first
WorldTour riders catch up to you, the Police will direct you to move off the
road until ALL professional riders and event vehicles have safely passed –
this may take up to 30 minutes.

                                                                             17
SIGNAGE AND MARSHALS
From start to finish, arrows and other directional signage will mark the
course of the route.
Signs will also indicate when you are approaching a refreshment stop.
Marshals and officials will be en-route, either in vehicles or at stationary
posts. They will be clearly identifiable in high visibility vests or event
uniform.
The marshals are not authorised to stop motorists. Their role is to
assist with the safety of all cyclists – please listen to and obey their
instructions.
There are some train crossings on route and again you must obey the
road rules and stop at all crossings when required.
To familiarise yourself with the ride route prior to the Challenge Tour,
or to keep track of your progress when stopped, we encourage you
to download the GPS enabled map from the Santos Tour Down Under
website at tourdownunder.com.au/challengetour

BE PREPARED
• Wear your official ride jersey and ID tag.
• Save this number in your mobile phone: (08) 8463 4760. Call this
  number if you are not able to finish and need to de-register, for roadside
  assistance and/or mechanical help.
• Bring your mobile phone and small change to make a phone call. There
  might be significant stretches along the route without mobile phone
  coverage.
• Ride with at least two x 750mL water bottles and/or hydration pack/s.
• Stop at each refreshment stop to rest and refill your water bottles – it is
  better to stop, drink and cool down than to risk dehydration.
• Protect yourself from sun exposure with SPF30+ sunscreen.
• Carry a pump, spare tube and puncture repair kit.
• Bring a credit card or some money in case you require mechanical
  assistance.
• NO participant under the age of 18 should be riding without the
  supervision of an adult.
Look out for each other. If you find someone in distress, stop and offer help
– just being there can be all the support that is needed.
Challenge Tour marshals and/or officials reserve the right to stop an
individual’s ride for health and safety reasons.

BE PREPARED
Event Management recommends that all cyclists insure themselves for
Personal Accident, Ambulance Cover, and travel (if applicable).

“You’ll never look better”
MIKE TURTUR’S TOP 10 TRAINING TIPS
SANTOS TOUR DOWN UNDER RACE DIRECTOR MIKE TURTUR SHARES
HIS TOP TEN TIPS TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE RIDE OF YOUR LIFE.
TIP #1 – MAKE SURE YOUR BIKE IS IN SOUND MECHANICAL CONDITION
Take your bike to a credible bike shop for a service. Make sure you check
your shoes, cleats and bike set-up, including handlebars, seat, and tyres -
and don’t forget your brakes!

TIP #2 – START TRAINING NOW!
It’s important to prepare your aerobic condition, and what better time to
start than now! Long steady rides are the best option. Start with lengthy
rides keeping to a steady pace and a high RPM. Beginners should aim to
ride 40km in one ride, or if you are more experienced you can increase this
distance to at least 80km.

TIP #3 – INCREASE YOUR EFFORT
Introduce short bursts of effort into your rides. The objective of these is
to increase your heart rate – get more blood pumping to your muscles.
Select a bigger gear and really test yourself for at least five minutes. Aim
for at least three efforts every second day. Try and introduce some climbs
into your rides to get those leg muscles working. When you feel ready for a
bigger test, increase your five-minute efforts to two per ride.

TIP #4 – FAMILIARISE YOURSELF WITH THE START AND FINISH LINES
Try to ride the start and finish of the course in advance of the big day to
familiarise yourself with the start and finish location. Learn how the road
feels under your tyres and think about gearing and cadence through the
corners.

52   TOURDOWNUNDER.COM.AU
TIP #5 – FAMILIARISE YOURSELF WITH THE EVENT ROUTE
Make sure you have all the information you need the week before the ride.
Familiarise yourself with the event route, get to know the towns the event
passes through, facilities along the route, how far each town is from the
last and where the refreshment stations are located.

TIP #6 – FUEL UP
In the week prior to the event, your diet should include at least one meal a
day that contains plenty of complex carbohydrates. Carb-loading helps your
body prepare for the ride by storing glycogen, helping to reduce possible
dehydration and fatigue on the day. But don’t overdo it the night before!

TIP #7 – EVENT DAY BREAKFAST AND PREPARATION
Breakfast should contain high levels of complex carbohydrates. Foods
such as pasta, rice, fruit and wholegrain breads or cereals are great. Keep
your fluid levels up in the lead up to the ride. Remember to apply plenty of
sunscreen before starting to keep your skin safe.

TIP #8 – DURING THE EVENT
For the first 20km sip small amounts of water regularly, roughly every
15 minutes. Introduce small amounts of carb-rich food such as a banana, a
sports bar or a small roll with jam or honey. It’s too early to eat chocolate,
so keep this source of sugar for later in the ride. Regardless of the
temperature eat and drink regularly to replace lost fluids.

TIP #9 – COMPLETION
After completing the ride, eat and drink enough to replace lost fluids until
you have cooled down. That night, make sure you enjoy a nice meal and a
good sleep. You did it!

TIP #10 – HAVE FUN
Remember to have fun; this is not a race, it’s a recreational ride! Challenge
yourself but know your limits. Don’t be afraid to stop, take a breather and
have some water.

                                                                               53
