Is this Australia's biggest bike race?

Is this Australia's biggest bike race?

The International Cycling circuit is at fever pitch. Once again the Jayco Herald Sun Tour comes to Australia in Jan/Feb for the summer circuit which was just announced!

With the likes of team Sky from GB (Chris Froome and Peter Kennaugh), last years winners making the journey to defend their crowns, it's going to be another huge cycling event. This years race is set to be the toughest tour Australian Cycling has seen, with the organisers adding another 107km to the length of the course.

The Jayco Hearald Sun Tour attracts the likes of many riders, including competitors from all over the world including Tour De France Winners. The 2018 event is open to both Men and Women and as lead apparel supplier, we're proud to be apart of such a historical event.

With 4 stages in 6 days and riders competing over 730km across Victoria, this is set to be one of the biggest events in cycling in 2018, so be sure to mark it down in your calendars and get down to one of the stages to get a glimpse of cycling royalty.

For more information on the event see the Jayco Herald Sun website here.

Hopefully we'll see you track-side, Team Beastwear.
