2014 Amy’s Otway Classic: Subaru National Road Series event about to begin.

2014-Amys-StartAmy’s Otway Classic, run in conjunction with the Wiggle?Amy’s Gran Fondo, makes its first appearance on the national calendar with riders set to tackle 110 kilometres from Lorne to Benwerrin, including a spectacular section along a fully closed Great Ocean Road on Sunday 14th September this year.

Both Amy?s Otway Classic and the Gran Fondo will benefit from support via the Victorian State Government?s Significant Sporting Events Program. In its fourth year, Amy?s Gran Fondo is held in memory of Australian cycling team member Amy Gillett, who tragically lost her life in a training accident in Germany in 2005 when hit by a car. Elite women will begin their race one hour before the mass start of Amy?s Gran Fondo in Lorne, with riders travelling along the picturesque Great Ocean Road before tackling a testing 10km Queen of the Mountain at Skenes Creek. Riders will then brace themselves before the course concludes with another tough 10km climb to the finish line at Benwerrin. More than 5,000 recreational and competitive cyclists, all experiencing the safety and thrill of riding on closed roads as part of Amy?s Gran Fondo, are expected to descend on the Colac Otway and Surf Coast region for the event on Sunday 14th September, which will also take in the Otway Ranges.
