Let the world class cycling buzz continue!
Big news for Australian cycling was recently announced.... We were pumped to see World Champion and Tour de France winner Cadel Evans and Victorian Premier Dr. Denis Napthine unveil plans for a new cycling event on the world calendar.
Cadel Evans here with Charlie Pickering at the launch.
The ‘Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race’ will be held on 31 January – 01 February 2015. It takes its inspiration from the European Spring Classics (sensational) and promises to be huge for cycling down under.
The course will start in Geelong and then weave its way through Barwon Heads (Cadel’s Aussie home base), Thirteenth Beach, Torquay, Bells Beach and then finish back on the Waterfront in Geelong.
We’ll be treated to two separate elite races – a women’s and a men’s on the Sunday – as well as a People’s Ride on the Saturday.
This is exciting stuff – not only will Victoria play host to some of the best cyclists on the planet, but the watching world gets to see some of the state’s most spectacular coastal scenery. Boom!
