Australian cycling classic

Discover what you've been missing

European classic down under

In the style of a European one-day classic, the Newcrest Orange Challenge is no easy cycle. There are no shortcuts. The quiet and car-free country roads are punctuated with sharp, tough climbs, never ending hills and challenging road surfaces that will put all of your training to the test.

Bicycle Network will be by your side the entire way with full on-route support, including food and rest stops.

We’ll take care of everything, so that all you have to do is ride.
