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.
The Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race has received sanctioning from Cycling Australia and 1.1 classification from the world governing body for cycling, the UCI (note: UCI support in principle, subject to approval by the UCI Road Commission and then formally by the UCI Management Committee).
