Herald Sun Tour in Beechworth Feb 3




On Friday 3rd February the Jayco Herald-Sun Tour will finish in Beechworth. This is an amazing chance to come along and see the best cyclists in the world do their thing. The race will include Chris Froome (multiple winner of the Tour de France), Esteban Chaves (2nd Giro Italia) and Simon Gerrans (multiple stage winner in all grand tours) amongst others. The organisers have kindly offered to maintain the street closure and to cover the insurance for a series of community cycling races in Beechworth as part of the festivities. The Beechworth Chain gang will be hosting three races on the afternoon of the 3rd February and we would love to see everyone there. The race format will be a street criterium from the bakery to the Myrtleford Rd turnoff and back. Each race will run for a different number of laps of the course. It is designed to be a bit of fun so come along and get involved.
