Organisers are working with authorities to ensure safety at the Towards Zero Race Torquay (January 30) and the men's and women's WorldTour Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race (February 1-2) during the ongoing bushfire crisis in Australia.

The organisers emphasised that the fires are far away from the race courses, but said they will continue to monitor air quality in the Geelong and Torquay regions and update competing riders and teams accordingly.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
