Regional Victoria is fast becoming the cycling capital of Australia. The Championships pit Australia’s most talented cyclists against the very best in the world, as riders vie for glory and a spot on the Australian road, time trial and criterion teams.
Now for the 12th consecutive year, Ballarat’s passionate cycling fans can rest assured that pedal power will return to the heart of the city next summer and beyond.
2018 will be bigger and better with new events for junior cyclists, more activities for families and kids, and an expanded Gran Fondo for the whole community to get involved in the fun and action.
This year’s event saw more than 20,000 fans line the streets, many from interstate and overseas, and injected $4 million into the local economy.
The Road National Championships will be held from 3 – 7 January 2018.
