Round Two | Old Freeway Hill Climb
In 2016 the freeway hill climb saw Russel van Hout upstage National Time Trial Champion and Tour de France Stage Winner Rohan Dennis to take the win. Climbing Super Star Nusah Kerrin took the win in the women’s category.
This year you can spectate AND have a crack to see how you compare to the best in the state. Full Entry opportunities will be released closer to the event date.
Round two takes us to the ‘Old Freeway hill climb’. Beginning at the ‘Kennels’, riders will make their way to the top via the bike path experiencing a mixture of steep pitches and flatter connections and even a small downhill in the middle. Inside the final few kilometres is a great spot for spectators where the Old Freeway climb reaches its steepest. At this point, riders will be trying to squeeze every last bit of energy out of their legs in a final charge up to the finish. The current record is held by Isowhey- Swiss Wellness rider Cameron Bayly with a time of 12 minutes and 40 seconds on the 6km climb. In the women’s category, the fastest time was set by Nusha Kerin with a time of 16 minutes and 48 seconds.
