The new year kicks off with a world-class field of Australia's elite cyclists will test their skills and stamina in the Ballarat region this summer. The major event, the Australian Road Championship, is held on the highly regarded Buninyong circuit where spectators line the streets to witness the ‘King of the Mountain’ claim their title. The National Championships feature three major disciplines – time trial, criterium and the Australian Road Championship.
On day three, you can put yourself in the action. Test yourself against iconic Mount Buninyong and Australia's toughest National Championship circuit. This is your opportunity to ride the exact course the professional riders will tackle in their attempt to be crowned the National Road Champion in 2017.
