The hugely anticipated NZ Cycle Classic is here! The Teams are arriving and the event starts with a 7.1km ITT around Old West Rd on Wednesday, starting at 2:30pm.
Details of the stages are available on the event website.
Stages 2 and 3 (Thursday & Friday) are 140km and 160km rides to Apiti, both incorporating Valley Rd. Both stages have sprint and KOM points.
On Saturday there is both the Grand Fondo for the non-pros and for the pro’s 2 laps of the Valley Rd/Colyton/Bunnythorpe/Ashhurst circuit. Should be good viewing on Valley Rd hill and at the sprint points.
Sunday sees a 110km circuit also incorporating Valley Rd.
Personally, I can’t wait to get out and watch some of it!
