Whoever says Old Willunga Hill, is talking about Richie Porte in one breath. He's the king of this climb by being the first to win 6 times the stage to the top of Willunga Hill in the Tour Down Under (2014-2019). His attack usually starts at 1.2 kilometers before the top. The differences are not already big at the top, but they often determine the final classification in the Tour Down Under.
In 2019 the 40-year-old Australian Mathew Hayman (winner Paris-Roubaix 2016) said goodbye here in the last stage of the Tour Down Under.
