It was a nice change at Baw Baw this year with blue skies and sunshine, in the past riders have been greeted by snow at the top at this event.

The race traditionally begins from Warragul and takes riders through Neerim South and over Vespers Hill before the final gruelling six kilometre climb up the Mount Baw Baw Tourist Road to the Mount Baw Baw Village.

This year the Men’s C, Women’s B & C and Masters B & C grade races began in Noojee and joined the original route and Elite Men’s A & B, Women’s A and Master’s A grades who had begun their race at Warragul City Motors.
