Velothon Sunshine Coast...

Postby RonK » Wed May 17, 2017 1:47 pm

I noticed this gran fondo event ad featuring Matt Keenen during the Giro coverage on Eurosport last night. Seems to be a new event - at least, I can't recall ever hearing about it before.

With a choice of three day or one day courses, it looks quite challenging - if you're into that kind of thing...

Velothon Sunshine Coast

Hmmm, digging deeper it seems to be part of an international series of events, and is UCI sanctioned.

I guess there will always be a certain amount of people that are willing to part with $486 for a few bars/gels and some bottled water. (who knows, you may even get an ill fitting event jersey to go with it) :lol:
The course isn't even that interesting, AND it has no gravel!! :shock:

Sounds like your average Ironman event. Oh.... hang on! :wink:
