Criterium – closed circuit style – racing is fast, strategic and captivating. The Union Cyclisite Internationale (UCI) has sanctioned Towards Zero Race Melbourne as a criterium race.
Here’s what to expect:
“It’s fast, it’s flat, it’s not a place for the faint hearted!” – Caleb Ewan, Towards Zero Race Melbourne ambassador
This event will also promote the importance of road safety thanks to the continued support of the Transport Accident Commission (TAC).
Towards Zero is a plan to ensure no one is seriously injured or killed on Victorian roads. It acknowledges that as humans, we can make mistakes, but we can’t accept that death and serious injuries should be a consequence of those mistakes.
No one deserves to die on Victorian roads. By driving at safe speeds, providing more road safety education for motorists, driving the safest car we can afford, and building safe roads, Towards Zero is achievable.
Towards Zero Race Melbourne will be live streamed via the event website and the Cadel Road Race Facebook page. Coverage will begin 10-minutes prior to each race and conclude 10-minutes after each race.
Parks Victoria is proud to welcome Towards Zero Race Melbourne to Albert Park, one of Melbourne’s most-loved public spaces.
Parks Victoria is the statutory authority of the Victorian Government that manages Victoria’s national parks, state parks and other land and waterways of environmental or cultural significance. The area managed by Parks Victoria covers almost a fifth of the State and 70% of Victoria’s coastline. Attracting over 106 million visits each year, visitation to Victoria’s parks contributes around a billion dollars annually to the Victorian economy.
