Top class fields are expected in all eight grades of the 23rd Canberra Tour (April 21-23), held around Canberra, ACT, Australia. Road events will start and finish at Eucumbene Drive, Duffy, and organisers say the success of the Canberra Tour has been built on a well-organised race that is raced through spectacular scenery, during a usually sunny, mild time of year. With challenging terrain around the nation's capital, it's a race that tests some of Australia's best riders.
The Canberra Tour is the first event in the 2006 National Road Series and will include the new teams competition for A grade men. Grades in this year's Tour include A, B, C, D & E grade men, A & B grade women and U19 men and women. On April 23, a 20km participation ride is open to all riders over the age of 14, where cyclists will ride part of the Canberra Tour course.
