2020 Melbourne to Warny

The iconic Powercor Melbourne to Warrnambool Cycling Classic will be supported by two new races in 2020, which will offer an exciting weekend of cycling for the region.
 
The inaugural Port Campbell to Warrnambool Handicap will offer every-day cyclists the chance to experience the atmosphere and prestige of the “Warrny” but in a more achievable format.
 
The race begins in Port Campbell and follows the final 75 kilometres of the elite Melbourne to Warrnambool course.
 
Riders will have the opportunity to cross the finish line in Raglan Parade a few hours before the elite race on Saturday, 15 February 2020.
 
In a boost for the local economy, cyclists will be encouraged to stay overnight in Warrnambool to race the Warrnambool Criterium on Sunday, 16 February 2020.
 
The exciting new event will race around a short 1.6 kilometre course along Warrnambool’s breakwater, taking in the scenery of where the Merri River meets the ocean.
 
The Powercor Melbourne to Warrnambool Cycling Classic is the second oldest one day race in the world and will be the queen event for the weekend. The race will also open Cycling Australia’s National Road Series for 2020. Read more
