Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race race overview

The 2018 Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race is celebrating its fourth anniversary and its second year WorldTour level having first worked its way up from 1.1 to 1.HC. This year's race will take place on January 28 in Geelong.

As a recent entrant into the WorldTour, not all 18 teams are required to race but 12 will take their place on the start line. Three Professional Continental squads and the Australian national team will also line out for the race.

This year's race is slightly shorter at 164km but gains a new fourth climb up Challambra Crescent which could make the race more decisive. The course starts on the waterfront in Geelong, heads out to the Great Ocean Road then turns back inland to finish with the laps of the city and finishing where it started.
