ORICA-SCOTT head to Victoria this week for the inaugural Towards Zero Race Melbourne and the third edition of the one-day Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race.
This new criterium race, named the Towards Zero Race Melbourne will take place tomorrow on Australia day after the elite women’s event and will follow the world-famous Australian Formula 1™ Grand Prix circuit.
The riders complete 22 laps of a 5.3kilometre circuit giving a total distance of 116.6kilometres which sets the scene for a challenging long afternoon of criterium racing.
Four-time Santos Tour Down Under stage winner and current Australian criterium champion Caleb Ewan will lead the ORICA-SCOTT squad having proven his great form and speed after a phenomenal week in Adelaide.
“Caleb was unbeatable at the Santos Tour Down Under and he will be the man to beat at Race Melbourne,” said sport director Matt Wilson. “We have a good strong team around him to back him and there’s no doubt about it we are going into this race to win.”
