The Word from the Race Director
“Melbourne will witness rainbows fly as Annemiek van Vleuten (Mitchelton Scott) will wear the world champion jersey for the first time in 2018”
“Every second will count for the overall victory in Women’s Tour and the battle for the yellow jersey on to the road for the Men. Time will be won or lost as the riders come back into Alexandra Gardens through a fast and technical section before heading down Southbank to the finish.”
