CycleSport Victoria, with the Colac Cycling Club, has announced a brand new event on the Victorian cycling calendar - the Phil Anderson Classic Criterium - which will be held at Apollo Bay, Australia, on Saturday February 11. The criterium will be a part of the Great Ocean Sports Festival, a two-day sports festival which includes 11 individual events, such as swimming and running endurance events, board paddle events, land and boat fishing competitions and a sailing regatta.
It will offer over $5000 in prize money and has events for Under 11 kids all the way through to masters aged riders.
"This event will provide our riders with a great street circuit in a spectacular location and will definitely provide some high quality racing," said CycleSport Victoria General Manager Ian Maher.
"There is a high chance that this venue could become the future site of the Victorian State Criterium Championships (excluding Men/Women) in the near future."
