NEW RESCHEDULED DATE: 29 September.
Okay here we go again! The weather is looking far more favourable this time around, the forecast is saying mid 20s and light winds. Nice. In fact: remember to bring plenty of water and sunscreen! We've had quite a few new entries, and we're now up to around 180 riders in total, which is a great turnout.
The new and updated race program is now available from this link. Please feel free to check it out and find out your start time (And again... anyone who doesn't like their handicap and decides not to show up will be cursed with flat tyres and relentless magpie attacks for the next month!)
We have great sponsors on board this year who have provided all sorts of goodies as additional prizes, including bike shop vouchers, bike parts, cycling kit, training videos, and leg waxing vouchers! Please give them your support and check out their websites below.
