2017 Victorian Road Series

8 Dec 2016 , by CyclingVic

Following on from a very successful fourth season in 2016, the Victorian Road Series (VRS) will return again in 2017, with just a few changes, all aimed at maintaining the status of the VRS as the premier state-based road series in Australia.
 

The most notable change is the addition of the Sunbury Cycing Club Spring Classic on September 24. There are also likely to be subtle course changes to the final stages of the East Gippsland and South West Tours. However, these alterations are yet to be confirmed.
 
As always, Time Trial bikes will be permitted in VRS17 events that include a time trial (i.e. Tour of East Gippsland, Mansfield Tour, Tour of the South West & Tour of Bright).

And once again, each of the VRS17 events will be contested across nine categories:
-Elite Men A (Teams), B & C Grades
-Women A (Teams), B & C Grades
-Masters Men A (Teams), B & C Grades

The 2017 Victorian Road Series will kick off with the Tour of East Gippsland over the weekend of February 18-19, and will comprise the following 11 events:
