Omega Pharma - Quick-Step Cycling Team will hope to have another active day, this time at the 130 km Stage 4 race from Norwood to Tanunda, Friday at 11 a.m. CST. There is a 8 km neutral start to the race. Stage 4 includes two Jayco Sprint locations — the first at Scott Street in Kersbrook, the 25.3 km mark, and the second at Melrose Street in Mount pleasant, which is the 51 km mark.

There are also two SKODA King of the Mountain (KOM) locations. KOM location number one is at Smith hill, on Norseworthy Road, 30.8 km into the race, and KOM location number two is at Menglers Hill, on Menglers Hill Road at the 107.4 km mark. Menglers hill is a Category 1 climb, meaning there could be some vicious attacks with less than 30 km remaining in the race at the final KOM point.
