Australian cycling legend Cadel Evans said:

“It’s been 10 years since the inaugural Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race, and I get more excited for each edition.

“I can’t wait to spend the first weekend of February with fans and locals lining the streets, watching the world’s best cyclists take on the roads I call home.”

Since the inaugural event in 2015, the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race has grown into a must-see spectacle on Australia’s cycling calendar, with this year’s event drawing more than 140,000 people to the region.
