Tour de Brisbane Newest Gran Fondo Down Under
Cycling is set to take over Australia’s third largest city with the Tour de Brisbane on Sunday 14 April 2019
Starting and finishing from the heart of Brisbane City in South Bank, this 110km fully closed road course is sure to get cyclists out of the saddle, sweating, and smiling.
Featuring five technical turns, four expressways, three tunnels, two bridges, and one epic climb, the newest addition to the UCI Gran Fondo World Series will provide a fast ride and a robust challenge to the field.
Organisers are also excited to offer Amy’s Rides, in support of the Amy Gillett Foundation with recreational categories in 110km, 45km and 8km distances. Accessible for riders and families of all ages, these riders enjoy multiple river crossings and the experience of an international calibre course in a safe environment.
The Strava GPX of all courses has recently been released and the city is buzzing with riders training for the event.
The Tour de Brisbane is the feature event of a three-week Brisbane Cycling Festival, with professional, amateur and mass participation events across the city between 28 March – 14 April.
The world’s best track cyclists will descend on Brisbane for the Six Day International series final from 12 – 14 April, combining elite track cycling with an energetic party atmosphere.
Confirmed for the 6-Day final so far include big names such as Jesper Morkov, Yoeri Havik, Andreas Mueller, Marc Hester, and Wim Stoetinga.
The World Grand Final for 6-Day will be the night of the Tour, bringing the weekend celebrations to a close.
Tour de Brisbane organisers are also pleased to have secured free travel for bikes through Virgin Australia. The local Airtrain is also offering discounted fares to make travel from the Airport to the City quick and simple.
