Jayco Bay Classic Series 2010
Jan 2 - 5, Geelong, Victoria Australia
The world cycling calendar will open and close in Geelong this year, beginning tomorrow with the 21st edition of the Jayco Bay Cycling Classic and climaxing in September with the staging of the UCI World Road Championships.
John Trevorrow, (Race Organiser) is extremely happy with the turn out for this years event, "The stars will make their presence felt from the outset," said Trevorrow, describing the cast list as the best field yet for the event. Trevorrow added , "The racing over the four days will be fast and furious and it won't just be that, there is also fantastic depth and super quality. We have six really strong teams that will make this year's series especially interesting."
While the host of professional riders will take start across the men's and women's event, in a list rich with both promise and achievement, the mix of established stars and emerging talent making it even more intriguing.
A scan of the women's entry list provides an entree to a fascinating contest, again pitting youth against experience, Trevorrow genuinely excited about the way in which the women's racing has progressed,
"Every year the women's race has improved to the point now where it has become equally enthralling as the men's. They have found the aggression that makes their time on the road as appealing to the crowd as the boys," Trevorrow says.
"The growth of the women's races has been without doubt the big advance in the Jayco Bay Classic over the past few years."
Megan Dunn (Jayco VIS/NSWIS) was the star of the series two years ago and has since developed into one of Australia's best riders. At just 18 she is a special talent and will provide a real contest to the established performers.
Kirsty Broun (Jayco (AIS) won the event in 2009, she is a dual Australian criterium champion and has been impressive on the Tasmanian Carnivals circuit where she has done battle with World Cup scratch race champion, Belinda Goss (Pitcher Partners) and Dunn.
But all three will be watching Honda's Rochelle Gilmore who will probably start a slight favourite for the Bay Classic title in 2010.
