The Cadel Evans Elite Road Race
Stepping up in quality, this year the men’s elite race has been elevated to a 1.HC classification. This means it’s positioned just one level below UCI World Tour. With elite cycling teams from all over the world with names such as BMC Racing, Team Sky and Australia’s own ORICA-GreenEDGE you’ll think you are watching one of the Spring Classic events in Europe.
With intense competition, the race is over 174km taking in the towns of Geelong, Barwon Heads and Torquay with beautiful coastal scenery along the way.
Former world champion, Cadel Evans, has been recently spotted around his hometown of Barwon Heads and seen out on the road by many a local cycling enthusiast. Cadel returns to the event in 2016 to join in the Momentum Entergy People’s Ride.
The Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race – Elite Men’s Race will be held on Sunday 31st January. The Elite Women’s Race is on Saturday 30th January after the People’s ride.
What a great legacy the event is for Australia’s only Tour de France winner.
