Set aside February 25th and 26th for 4 stages of thrilling racing.
Once again the race consists of a short prologue/Team TT, a flat road race, a hilly road race and the individual Hill Climb of Crow’s Nest . There are time bonuses available on stages 2 and 3 to keep things interesting.
The overall general classification winner is decided upon by overall time taken on the road across all four stages.
There are grades A to F depending upon ability and the Tour Of Goolwa also offers teams racing with teams of 4 riders in graded divisions racing over 4 stages with the 3 fastest riders times from each stage counting towards the team’s overall general classification.
New for 2017
Division 4 Teams You asked for it and here it is. Last year, Division 3 was such a hit that this year we are offering Teams racing for riders in D grade and lower. This is the chance for all riders to experience team racing.
Teams Hill Climb The times for the Stage 4 hill climb will still be taken individually (ie fastest 3 riders times will go towards the overall team time) but this year each team will start all 4 riders together.
Back Again in 2017
Cash Bonus for Crows Nest Record Breaker: As well as the stage win, whoever sets the new record for the final stage climb will receive a bonus $50. Current record holders are: Michael Teniswood (9:50.4) and Nusha Kerin (11:04.3).
