On Thursday 26 January 2017, the inaugural Race Melbourne (RM) will take place as a prequel to the third Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race (CEGORR). The CEGORR has already established itself as Australia’s premier weekend of cycling and as an initiative of the Victorian State Government is an integral feature of the State’s major events calendar.
The RM is sanctioned by cycling’s international federation, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) and will be a ‘Criterium’ (circuit road race) style road race following the Albert Park circuit, a replica of that used for the Australian Formula One Grand Prix.
Two races will be held:
Sprints – the race within the race
Points will be awarded to the 3 fastest riders during intermediate sprints in both the men and women’s races. A bell will sound ahead of each intermediate sprint lap.
For men the sprints take place on laps 5, 10 and 15 with an overall sprint classification winner.
For women the sprints take place on laps 4 and 7 with an overall sprint classification winner.
