Ride the Official Circuit in the morning and enjoy food and beverages in exclusive VIP hospitality at the finish line in the afternoon.




Begin your day as a pro, with the opportunity to ride one lap of the highly anticipated Stage 4 of the Jayco Herald Sun Tour under race conditions. Following a briefing from Race Director, John Trevorrow you will take off under a controlled start from the official stage start line side by side with cycling legend and former Sun Tour winner, Stuart O’Grady.  Once the lead car drives off, you can take the course at your own pace, trying your luck at the current record Strava segment up the 5km Kinglake climb at an average of 5%.

Surrounded by the official race caravan, you will cross the finish line and be the envy of your mates. Take the time to jump on the podium for a photo with the podium girls before freshening up in your exclusive change area on the finish.


VIP Hospitality for Final Stage

Exclusive access to the rider signing area and team buses before the start of Stage 4. Hosted by Stuart O’Grady, your exclusive VIP Hospitality is in the best location on the course, metres from the finish line and on the final corner, you have a dedicated, air-conditioned room where you can enjoy a grazing lunch and open bar all afternoon.
