NRS hots up as series hits first of three Classics at Grafton

The Grafton to Inverell Cycle Classic marks the end of the stage racing on the 2011 National Road Series, and fittingly, with its' long history as the premier NSW cycling event, introduces the domestic competition to 'Classics' season.

 

Along with the Melbourne to Warrnambool and the recent Launceston - New Norfolk, the 'Grafton' is one of only a few opportunities on the domestic calendar for riders to compete over more than 200 kilometres and opens up the racing to the barrodeurs and opportunists that perhaps don't get the chance to distinguish themselves in the criterium heavy stage races that populate July, August and September.
