Two Months Until the 2018 Edition Kicks Off

One of Victoria’s most iconic races on the Victorian Road Series calendar is set for a route shake up in 2018, with the aim to encourage more people to enter and complete the Mt Baw Baw Alpine Resort Classic.

The race, which first began in 2001, will this year see some grades begin from the historic Noojee Heritage Centre instead of the traditional starting town of Warragul.

The change will see the race cut down from 100 to just under 50 kilometres for some grades in the hope it will put the focus back on the iconic climb up Mt Baw Baw.

“Over the past couple of years we have noticed a decline in entry numbers across various categories and this change is hoped to encourage more people to participate in the race,” said Race Director Karin Jones.

“The feedback we’ve had from Cycling Victoria, is that many riders were wanting the challenge of climbing Mt Baw Baw but that the preceding 40 kilometres out of Warragul were extremely tough prior to the ultimate goal which is reaching the summit of Mt Baw Baw.

“The Warragul Cycling Club is very keen to maintain the history of the race which is why the strongly supported categories of Elite Men’s A & B, Women’s A and Master’s A will keep the same route and start at Warragul City Motors in town.

“However ultimately we want the Mt Baw Baw Alpine Resort Classic to be an achievable and enjoyable challenge for the other categories,” Jones said.

The Men’s C, Women’s B & C and Masters B & C grade races will begin in Noojee and join the original route which snakes its way through the hills before starting the gruelling 6.4km climb at 12% to the top of Gippsland’s Mt Baw Baw.

The 18th Mt Baw Baw Resort Classic takes place on Sunday, April 8 and will also include the Victorian Hill Climb Championships.

The race honour roll includes cycling legends Dave McKenzie and Simon Gerrans.

Entries are now open on the Cycling Victoria portal.
