More of the world’s best women riders are set to pedal their way to Victoria for the 2018 Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race.
Major Events Minister John Eren joined Aussie Tour de France hero Cadel Evans Wednesday to announce an increased ranking for next year’s Deakin University Elite Women’s Race.
“This is another big win for women’s cycling in Australia, and we’re proud to be bringing more of the world’s best female teams and riders to the sporting capital,” he said.
“Events like these fill hotel rooms, create jobs, and attract visitors from around the world who splash their valuable tourism dollars.”
The new ranking meant the top 10 women’s teams in the world could now compete in Geelong.
The Towards Zero Race Melbourne will also return in 2018, featuring two fast races for elite men and women.
More than 3000 budding cyclists will likely ride with Cadel Evans in the People’s Ride with entries to open in August.
Deakin University vice-chancellor Professor Jane den Hollander also announced that Deakin University would extend its partnership with the Elite Women’s Race until 2019.
