VCC Development & Training Programs

Our Tour of Bright 2017 Training Programs start on Tuesday 10 October and are now open for registrations.

The 8 week Race Program targets the Tour of Bright (1-3 December) and is ideally suited to riders who have developed a strong base and are ready to race C grade+ in one of Australia’s most hotly contested club race.

The 8 week Development Program targets the Fondo at the Tour of Bright (1-3 December). The program is for riders who have ridden through the winter/spring and have an interest in tackling some of the iconic climbs in the Vic alps but aren’t ready to race them.

Both programs are open to members of all clubs – members need a Race or Ride CA membership; you will need a race licence to participate in any CA-affiliated races.

You will require

  • a helmet with an Standards Australia sticker inside
  • rear and front lights
  • a moderate level of fitness
  • a road bike with drop handlebars
  • cycling shoes with cleats (and matching pedals) are highly recommended but not essential.

The cost is $100 for either program.
