If you love cycling then you need to be in Barwon Heads at the end of January. On Saturday January 30th, The Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race is being held.Whilst there will be hundreds of elite cyclists the event includes open participation event as well, with around 4,000 cyclists.A course has been designed by Scott Sunderland and Cadel Evans and travels right past 100 Hitchock, through Cadel’s hometown of Barwon Heads, through Thirteenth Beach, and down to Torquay, Bells Beach and Moriac before ending on the Geelong Waterfront.Jan 30th and 31st 2016, The Cadel Evans race is anticipated to attract a world class field next year after it recently received a classification upgrade. The race has been given in principle support from the Union Cycliste Internationale for 1.HC classification, which is just one level below the UCI World Tour. Pretty cool.UCI vice president said “The rise in the status to ‘Hors’ category status means that it can attract up to 75 per cent of the event from world tour teams,” she said. “Which means three quarters of the field could be [made up] of the teams currently racing in the Tour de France.”
