The Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race will not be staged in January 2022.

Visit Victoria has been advised that the WorldTour Teams will not be able to travel to Australia for January’s elite cycling calendar due to national quarantine challenges. 

“We know this is disappointing for race organisers, our partners, communities along the Surf Coast and cycling fans from all over who love the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race,” Visit Victoria CEO Brendan McClements said.

Race organisers have been working closely with the Australian and international cycling community to exhaust all possibilities.

“Visit Victoria is currently exploring opportunities to hold an international cycling event later in 2022,” Mr McClements said. 

Visit Victoria thanks the UCI for its ongoing support and we look forward to continuing our strong partnership that has been built over many decades.
