The Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race is back and better than ever in 2018 following the outstanding success of the first three events in 2015, 2016 and 2017.
Inspired by the prestigious Spring Classics of Europe, the elite one day race format delivers high excitement and intense competition, and the 2018 elite men's and women's races will provide the fierce competitiveness of one day cycling.
With some of Victoria's most spectacular coastal scenery as its backdrop, the challenging race will start in Geelong, travel through Cadel's home town of Barwon Heads and pass by Thirteenth Beach, Torquay, Bells Beach and the rolling hills around Moriac with a dramatic finish on Geelong's Waterfront.
In 2017, the Elite Men's Road Race featured some of the world's best cyclists with numerous UCI World Teams participating, attracting close to 100,000 spectators across the event weekend.
As well as the Elite Men's and Women's races, cycling enthusiasts are able to take part in the Swisse People's Ride on Saturday 27 January. A sell-out with approximately 3,500 participants from Victoria and across Australia following the course through iconic areas of Victoria's Bellarine Peninsula and the Surf Coast.
