The Sunshine Coast Cycling Club is hosting an Open Race over the Easter Weekend, commencing on Saturday with a Road Race at Tinbeerwah. Racing is in the format of a Tour, similar to Tour de France, where riders will race over three days over four stages, including Hill Climb, Road Racing and Time Trial.
There are over 260 riders entered for this race, ranging from Elite men and women, masters, juniors and various categories, riders hail from all over the South East including the Gold Coast and as far away as Maryborough and beyond. David Betts, winner of both the Mooloolaba and Kawana Island Criteriums held recently will be racing, so great racing action is quaranteed.

The Sunshine Coast Tour will be run as a Tour and you must complete a stage to be able to do the next one. Spares vehicles will be in place for Elite A Men, Elite A Women, Elite B Men and Masters A Men and we are endeavouring to have spares vehicles in place for all other grades. However we recommend that all riders carry a pump and spare tube because even if there is a spares vehicle it may not be in a position to service all riders.
Anybody who can help out with a Lead or Spares Vehicle, especially on the Saturday and Monday Stages, please contact Ron Boyle on 54424050 or 0417 363123. It's a great way to follow the racing.
All riders are reminded that they need to wear a club Jersey or a registered sponsored Jersey during all stages.
There will be Time Bonuses on the finish of the 2 road stages for all grades. They will be 1st 15 seconds, 2nd 10 seconds, 3rd 5 seconds.
Prizemoney for the Tour will be focussed on the overall and we will pay to 5th place in most grades. There will be prizemoney for stage wins. Details will follow once entries are finalised at Midnight Monday.
Precise start times for each Grade will be posted once all nominations are in. All riders should be at registration at Tinbeerwah by 8.00 am Saturday
