The 2021 SBS Bank Tour of Southland officially kicks of this weekend, with the first stage taking place on Sunday at Queens Park in Invercargill.


SBS has been an official sponsor of the Tour of Southland for the past for nine years, and the team is thrilled to get behind this great community event for another tour.

This year's race is set to look different due to the current Covid-19 restrictions under Level 2, with gatherings limited to 100. Race organisers ask that those watching the race from the roadside do not gather in large groups and remain socially distanced from others.
