Event Overview 


2025 DATES
Coming Soon

After a successful event in 2024, Eastern Goldfields Cycle Club would like to thank all the Riders, Sponsors, Volunteers and Supporters of the event. They look forward to seeing everyone again at the 2025 event. 

Held over the WA Day long weekend, the two-day event is returning with multiple races across some of the richest and historic landscapes of the Western Australian Goldfields

Choose your challenge!  

The Goldfields Cyclassic is a graded handicap race for those who want a more competitive experience.  

If you're new to cycling, or closer to leisure than racing mode, the Northern Star Community Challenge is here for you. It's an approachable, slightly more relaxed experience of the same iconic route.  

So whether you’re along for the ride or vying for top spot on the podium, join us at the 2025 Cyclassic to compete in either option. Entries opening in early 2025

Day One 
The Shire of Menzies Classic – Chas Egan Memorial Race

 Grading & Prizes

With the Goldfields Cyclassic including handicap races, riders in all grades have an opportunity to win.  

Don't worry, the two-day Cyclassic format and prize money remains in place – based on overall fastest times for the weekend! 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.
