Stage 2: Minara Resources Leonora Golden Wheels

Riders completing the second stage of the Goldfields Cyclassic – the Minara Resources Leonora Golden Wheels start on Sunday morning in Menzies. They will continue north along the Goldfields Highway. After heading down the hill from Menzies, the road can be seen heading out across the Jeedamya plains to Leonora. This race again will be run as a stand-alone handicap race with three sprint sections set along the route. The race will enter the town of Leonora where riders will complete one lap of a very tight street circuit before hitting the finishing line where the celebrations around the Leonora Golden Gift take place.
