We are thrilled to announce that Olympic Gold Medallist, Stuart O'Grady, will be our Race Director for the inaugural Revolve24 Event taking place at The Bend, Adelaide, on 13/14 January 2018.
In his role as Race Director, O’Grady will be responsible for the safety of the cyclists on track at all times. He will be the final decision maker regarding the challenge rules, and responsible for the smooth running of the cycling action, including participant, marshals and event management briefings. In the lead up to the event he’ll also be tasked with creating a Revolve24 race manual tailored to conditions at The Bend as well as developing 12 week training regimes for beginner and advanced riders taking part in the event.
O’Grady, who is also Cycling Coach for the upcoming 2018 Invictus Games, said of the appointment, “I’m thrilled to be stepping into the role of Race Director for Revolve24. The weekend-long event will be an opportunity for cyclists of all skills levels to come together and challenge themselves. Being the first event taking place at The Bend Motorsport Park when it opens means Revolve24 will be a highlight of the Tour Down Under’s nine day festival of cycling.”
Stuart O’Grady is one of Australia’s leading professional riders. He raced in 6 Olympic Games, 17 TDF’s, won Gold at the 2004 Olympic Games, was the first Australian to win Paris-Roubaix and has won four Tour de France stages, while also wearing the coveted yellow jersey for a total of nine days plus winning Adelaide’s own Tour Down Under twice.
Hundreds of riders are expected to descend onto the newly launched Bend Motorsport Park for Revolve24 to experience the world class 7.77km undulating track. Riders can choose between 24 hour, 12 hour and 6 hour challenges and enter as a soloist or a team of 2, 4, 6 or 8.
Revolve24's Weekend Festival of Cycling will also feature a number of other cycling challenges over the two days, which will be announced in the coming months.
