Tour begins riverside

Tour begins riverside Image

A flood of lycra converged on Southbank last month as the Jayco Herald Sun tour, Victoria’s premier cycling event, hit town.

For the first time the race started in the middle of Melbourne, with a 2.5 km time trial prologue. The prologue began in Birrarung Marr, travelled across Princes Bridge, and then raced along Southbank Promenade to the finish line in Queensbridge Square.

Jack Bauer won the prologue stage with a time of three minutes. The race then toured regional Victoria, travelling to Geelong, Ballarat and Bendigo before finishing at the scenic Arthurs Seat on the Mornington Peninsula. The overall winner of the tour was Simon Clarke.
