The Junior Cycling Classic is expected to attract some of the best South Australian and interstate junior (under 17 year old) cyclists. A series of junior races will be held, including Under 17 male and female, Under 15 male and female and Under 13 male and female. Novice events will also be staged for 8 to 10 year-olds, 11 to 13 year-olds and 14 to 15 year-olds.
"This is a great opportunity for young cyclists to be part of excitement and energy of the Tour Down Under," Mawson Lakes Project Director Chris Branford said. "I urge all young cyclists to put their training to the test and enter the Junior Cycling Classic."
