Inaugural Honda Hybrid Women's Tour, Course Announcement

Dan Jones | 05/10/09

Following the win by Cadel Evans at the UCI Road World Championships in Mendrisio, Switzerland, Australian cycling is on high.

However, it has so often been the women delivering the results for Australia including Kathy Watt's gold medal ride at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992 and Sara Carrigan in Athens in 2004.

This success has been achieved despite there being no major multi-stage tour for women in Australia.

That is all about to change with the inaugural Honda Hybrid Women's Tour.

What: Honda Hybrid Women's Tour, course announcement with Australian world championships representative Rochelle Gilmore and the Prime Estate elite women's cycling team

When: Tuesday 6 October

Time: 1:00pm

Where: Alexandra Gardens, Boathouse Drive, Melbourne

The Honda Hybrid Women's Tour will run from 15-17 October, 2009, and feature more than 70 women.

The three-day stage race will consist of a 55km road race, 10km individual time trial and a criterium race in Lygon Street on a 2.1km circuit.

The Honda Hybrid Women's Tour will use the resources and infrastructure of the Jayco Herald Sun Tour including Police-resourced rolling closures and fully closed circuits for the time trial and criterium.
