Some of the nation’s best cyclists are set to battle out in Tweed Heads and the hinterland over a gruelling nine-day course from the 28 of November to the 6 of December. The tour will take riders through several narrow country lanes and undulating volcanic hills that the organisers hope will promote exciting and competitive racing.
Following the suspension of the National Road Series due to the pandemic, the National Tour was quickly established as a replacement to offer cyclists a new opportunity for racing and will effectively act as a decider for the winners of the entire 2020 series.
Over 21 teams have been confirmed, including 2019 Road Nationals Champion Sarah Gigante and former Australian Road Race Champion Peta Mullens.
The first stage of the race will kick off on the Black Rocks Bridge in Pottsville at 6:30 am this Saturday. For more information visit NX Sports.
