Event Overview

The 2017 Goldfields Cyclassic will continue as a two-day, two-stage handicap race across the Goldfields from Kalgoorlie-Boulder to Menzies and on to Leonora coinciding with the Leonora Golden Gift Foot Race. Riders will be racing across some of the richest and historic landscapes of the Western Australian Goldfields.

With the mineral wealth of this area being world renowned, it’s appropriate that this race also boasts being “Australia’s Richest Handicap Cycle Race” with a total prize pool of approximately $40,000 up for grabs. Being a handicap race, riders in all grades have an opportunity to win. Held over the WA Day long weekend, the two-stage event will be run as two individual race stages - the Shire of Menzies - Menzies Classic and the Minara Resources Leonora Golden Wheels. Each rider will be assigned a finish time as the time after the lead rider crosses the line and the time the rider crosses the line for each race. Prize money is allocated on merit so the spread of prizes is equal and fair, if you win Line Honours then you are not eligible to win a grade prize.  The amount of money to be won is allocated accordingly so you will always win the highest amount. 

The 2016 Goldfields Cyclassic was won by Timothy Sellar, who rides with the Satalyst Verve team in a combined time of 5 hours, 13 minutes and 55 seconds. The first female across the line was Rebecca Mackey of the Arbitrage team in a combined time of 5 hours, 42 minutes and 56 seconds.
