Santos Tour Down Under


Events South Australia

What we do

Gravity Media Australia worked with Events South Australia as the “host” broadcast company for the Santos Tour Down Under. This was Gravity Media’s third year as the broadcast and production partner.

This 10 day event brought male and female UCI WorldTour professional cycling teams to race on the streets of Adelaide and across regional South Australia each January. South Australia and the Santos Tour Down Under is the first stop for the world’s best male and female cycling teams and riders racing in 2023 and has been elevated by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) to become the opening event of the UCI WorldTour which also includes the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a España.

What we used

In a complex technology and logistics undertaking, Gravity Media deployed state-of-the-art high definition Outside Broadcast trucks and satellite units, more than 20 cameras, including on-board “chase” motorcycles and coverage from the air with helicopter and drone cameras, and a crew of up to 150 to cover the Santos Tour Down Under as it traveled almost 1,000 kilometres across South Australia.

Gravity Media also deployed specialist broadcast technology and communications services through its Globecam business which is internationally acknowledged for its innovation in the development of world-leading speciality miniature cameras and RF communications solutions.

In addition to delivering all broadcast technologies and as “host” broadcast company, Gravity Media was also the television production company for the event, creating, producing and delivering the complete television production of the Santos Tour Down Under for the world.


Gravity Media’s overall production – encompassing 40 hours of live coverage and the production and delivery of a daily highlights programme for Australian and international audiences – was broadcast to a global audience across multiple international broadcast and content delivery platforms including the Seven Network in Australia.
