Our hearts may be full of love and warmth for Oz, yet our wallets may be obscenely empty.
For those of you who can't afford a decent visit to "Your Chance To See The Old Man", hop on the Beehive teleportation system. We'll try to tour the biggest hill of the TDU : Old Willunga Hill Road.
To get to Down Under, we'll probably have to first get the hell out of 'Up Over'. How will we do that? Simple. Give a spank on that globe, let it dance around and voila! Embrace the Southern Hemisphere!
Patience now. Lets zoom into the wonderful land of Kangaroos.
We're now approx. 100,000 feet above Willunga, in the sunny state of South Australia.
Our Chinese digital zoom frankly sucks. Switching to European opticals.........
.....aha, there's Willunga!
The road shown with the red arrow is our destination. Its the Old Willunga Road.
It is featured in Stage 5, the longest stage of this scorching Tour. Riders ride two times over it and it could perhaps be the most strategic spot for attacks.
Old Willunga is basically a 1000 foot climb, little over 6K in length at almost 5-6% in ave gradient.
