Starting and finishing on The Esplanade, the 13km circuit will follow a clockwise direction with the peloton racing along Bell Street before hitting the iconic Great Ocean Road, Duffields and Messmate Roads.
You can expect fast and dynamic racing, with the riders guaranteed to be attacking as they punch over the two short climbs on the back of the circuit. The peloton then heads back via South Beach Road, and there’s a quick decent to Horseshoe Bend Road before hitting the finish line in the heart of Torquay.
Line the track or check out the action from the Event Village and community hub opposite Price Street.
