TOWARDS ZERO RACE MELBOURNE - OVERVIEW

Visit Victoria in collaboration with Cadel Evans and his management Signature Sport and with the support of the Victorian Government, has created a new major cycling event for Victoria, Towards Zero Race Melbourne.

Towards Zero Race Melbourne will kick-off the fast-growing line-up of events for the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race on Australia Day 2017 (Thursday 26 January) with a criterium (circuit) style race for both elite men’s and women’s cyclists on the world-famous Australian Formula 1™ Grand Prix Track.

The race sanctioned by the Union Cyclisite Internationale (UCI) – cycling’s international federation, will test rider power and team strategy whilst the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race events will provide the final endurance test held over the weekend in Geelong, Barwon Heads and Torquay.

Australia’s own ORICA-SCOTT will challenge other UCI WorldTour heavyweights such as Cadel Evans’ former team, BMC Racing, AG2R LA MONDIALE (FRA), Quick-Step Floors (BEL), Team Sky (GBR) and Trek-Segafredo (USA), to name a few for a brilliant spectacle.

As well as showcasing some of the worlds’ best cycling action up close to enjoy, Towards Zero Race Melbourne will also include a range of family activities that encourage healthy active living and a love of cycling within our Parks – open for all on Australia Day!

THIS FREE EVENT IS PROUDLY BROUGHT TO YOU BY:

Towards Zero is a vision for a future free of deaths and serious injuries on our roads. It acknowledges that as humans, we make mistakes. But when those mistakes happen on our roads we come off second best, because our bodies aren’t designed to absorb high impact speeds.

That’s why we need to ensure we have a safe road system in place. A system that protects us from our own mistakes and those of others. A system that will change road safety for good.
