It’s the second time in the past three years the town of Paracombe has featured in a stage finish but unlike previous editions the majority of today’s racing will take place in the South West, between Stirling, Bradbury and Aldgate.
After the 5-lap starting circuit, riders head north toward North Summit Road. The KOM on Torrens Hill Rd is just 400m from the finish line so there will be plenty of positioning amongst the peloton as today’s stage finale looms.
You can see the latest photos, videos and reports from today’s racing on the Bicycling Australia Facebook page. We will have a full report of the stage here on the site later in the day.
