2018 3 Day Tour

Created: 15 April 2018 Last Updated: 22 April 2018

We are celebrating the 60th year of the 3 Day Tour this year:
The Victorian Amateur Cycling Union (one of the pre-cursors to Cycling Victoria) ran the Eric Hall Memorial Tour in 1958.  The race featured 3 stages over 2 days and included some familiar sounding names such as Norm McDonough winning the climb up Toolangi in Melbourne's north east.  Bruce Reynolds from Hawthorn walked away with the overall victory on the last stage.

The tour composition has continued to evolve and this year with two large steps are being taken:

1) Shifting the date to late April (28-29 Apr)

2) A one day version where you can enter for Saturday to do the Newham course and time trial.  One day entries here

The Tour committee (which operates separately to the Combine but we still love them) feels the date change better aligns with rider expectations and coordinates well with Victorian and National race schedules.  The Saturday and Sunday formats will remain familiar to previous editions with the big stage on Sunday out at Metcalfe-Redesdale.

Entries close Thursday 26 April.  Volunteers are always welcome and make the race better.  Updated information about the Tour will be published on the Tour website
