Each afternoon after the race the teams return to City. At the Tour Down Under Village in Victoria Square the public can look at the bikes, the mechanics at work and various other displays and merchandise.
Each day the bikes are washed and the mechanics give them a thorough check, clean and relubricate the running gear.
This year's Tour Down Under was attended by record crowds; many first timers coming to see the seven time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong. This is a photo of his bicycle.
