One of the greatest weekends of cycling Australia has ever seen.
The first event of its kind in Australia, and inspired by the prestigious Spring Classics of Europe, the elite one day race format delivers high excitement and intense competition.
With some of Victoria’s most spectacular coastal scenery as its backdrop, the challenging race will start in Geelong, travel through Cadel’s home town of Barwon Heads and pass by Thirteenth Beach, Torquay, Bells Beach and the rolling hills around Moriac with a dramatic finish on Geelong’s Waterfront.
As well as the Elite Men’s Road Race on Sunday 1 February, this major new event will be preceded by an Elite Women’s Road Race and People’s Ride on Saturday.
Spectator or participant, cycling regular or novice, Australia’s most successful cyclist Cadel Evans looks forward to welcoming you to Geelong and the Great Ocean Road in 2015.
“For me this is not the end, but the beginning of a very exciting new chapter of my life….. I still have some big races to ride in from Sunday’s Men’s Road World Championships for Australia to the inaugural Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race on February 1, 2015 where I will sign-off on my professional cycling journey. I hope to see you there.”
