The Tour of Bright is one of the most popular events on the Australian cycling calendar and each year sees a large contingent from Canberra and New South Wales competing. Last year the entries for the event filled up quicker than many people expected and this year the organisers gave advanced warning of the open date for entries – which is TODAY at 12 Noon.
This year there are caps on the total number of entries and per grade, with special provisions for both men's and women's A grade events, which this year are listed as teams events (individuals can also enter). If you are planning on racing at Bright this year then you will need to get your entries in as soon as possible after they open. Entries are via the Cycling Vic website and full details can be found at either the Tour of Bright website or Cycling Vic race page.
This year, Argonaut Cycling has produced two structured training plans for the event, 9 and 16 week options, to help riders prepare for the race. Rider’s needing more base work have already started their training program, however riders requiring a shorter lead time for preparation can opt for the 9 week program, which would see them start dedicated Tour of Bright training at the start of October. The 9 week program costs only $50 and is available in either a 8-10 hrs or 10-16hrs per week format. If you would like to purchase a program please visit the Training Plans page.
We wish you all the best of luck, both with the event and getting your entries in
