Cycling Event: Junior Tour
July 27 - July 28
Castlemaine Cycling Club in conjunction with Cycling Victoria will hold a Junior Tour based in the ANA Hall in Harcourt on 27th and 28th July.
No road closures, but some reduction in speed limits on the courses for the duration of racing.
Racing will commence 9 am Saturday with a Time Trial.
Cyclists will travel south on Harmony Way to a “U” turn and return to the finish line in Harcourt and Saturday afternoon will see racing, north and south of Harcourt on Harmony Way.
The tour will finish on Sunday morning when cyclists take on the tough 12km course of Market St, Reservoir Rd, McIvor Rd and Harmony Way, while others travel the distance north on Harmony Way to a turnaround point near the freeway before turning onto the 12 km circuit.
Cyclists and their families will travel from across Victoria to compete in these selection races, for the Victorian State Junior Team, to compete in the National Championships on the Gold Coast in September. Many of the big name Victorian cyclists of today have gained very valuable experience in these junior tours, and this 3 Stage tour will cater for riders in Under 11, 13, 15 and 17.
