A Willunga Hill finish on Sunday sounds great for the race and I'm sure the Airport will be happy as most will flight out Monday now.

They haven't announced the Bupa stage yet? I hope it's not the Sat ending in Strath.

But happy Corkscrew is back.

The bupa is on the Saturday so this could be good for some and bad for others organisers can’t please everyone so changing it could be a good thing it may work it may not but kudos for organisers for mixing it up

Well it is a pity to lose the final "loop" race on the Sunday as it is a great one to watch but it will make for perhaps a tense finish if GC contenders are closely matched going into the final day.

I usually don't get to see the Willunga Hill stage as I am usually working but I can this time around :-)

Could be quite explosive racing!

Overall - Neutral

I think this might be the best tdf for some time. The dropping of the city stage, good. It was killing the tour. Shifting Willunga to Sunday, great, it’s become an iconic stage and had to be kept. Saturday I hope works, Yankalilla is so pretty to ride through. The first three stages have been well thought out I can’t wait.
Overall impression. This will be a tdf to remember.

I agree with Matt S.  The changes are very good IMO.  The CBD stage on a Sunday was usually just a crit for the sprinters.   The weekend stages will hopefully provide some real racing.   I always watch the Willunga stage from Main Road and enjoy the festive atmosphere.   It is just not the same in the city on the Sunday.

Overall - Very Good

Stage 3 has them racing up Spring Gully Rd 7 times?  That will be fun … to watch!!  Might put some in a pickle :)
