Towards Zero Race Torquay

The Course

The Event Director is finalising the full course in consultation with Cadel Evans. But we can tell you, it will take in the stunning Torquay foreshore, the rolling roads to the west of the township and the very start of the iconic Great Ocean Road.

The circuit course will allow fans to see the peloton numerous times, leading up to an action-packed finish on the Esplanade.
