The 2016 Jayco Herald Sun Tour will again start with an exciting, spectator friendly stage through the heart of Melbourne. The 2.1 kilometre individual time trial will this time start from the stage in Federation Square with the international field having to negotiate a technical but brilliant route that will see thousands of cycling fans cheering a world class field along this stunning course.
The riders will race against the clock to see who will end the day in the leader's Yellow Jersey and take the applause from the crowd. The course has a few challenging turns and short climbs but finishes with a flat, fast run along Southbank promenade. Teams will be presented prior to the start of the KordaMentha Real Estate Prologue in Federation Square and there will be plenty of great spectator points throughout the stage.
Get yourself a front row seat at one of the many restaurants in Southbank, relax in Alexandra Gardens or feel the tension build as riders depart from Federation Square.
The KordaMentha Real Estate Prologue is proudly presented by KordaMentha Real Estate.
