Team UniSA-Australia Supporters’ Club

Team members of UniSA-Australia

Welcome to our Supporters’ Club. We’re glad to have you on board to support one of the longest participating teams in the Santos Tour Down Under (STDU).

Team UniSA first entered the Tour in 2001 and we have been flying the flag for young Australian cycling talent ever since.

In 2006, the race classification was elevated to Hors Categorie and Team UniSA became the official Australian national team in the event. In 2008 the STDU joined the prestigious UCI ProTour, the first event outside cycling's traditional home of Europe to do so, and Team UniSA-Australia was still in the thick of things.

The team has a history of determination, passion for the win and a record to prove it. It is always home to new talent in Australian cycling and the riders you follow here will often go on to make it big in Europe and around the world as they join the professional circuit.

So join us in flying the flag for Australian cycling. We will keep you up-to-date with our riders throughout the Santos Tour Down Under making you a part of a band of enthusiastic supporters both online and trackside. On the site you can read race reports and watch highlights videos, and access inside information on the race routes from Supporters’ Club Captain, Olympian and five times Tour de France contestant, Patrick Jonker.
