Trying to find info on this as I'm wanting to do it this year bu there doesnt seem to be any info about the place. I know it got cancelled last year. Does anyone have any info they'd care to share?

The NRS dates have the Canberra tour listed at 20-22 sept, looks like its been renamed to national capital tour

My understanding so far is that it's NRS (national road series) teams only, so normal graded riders can't enter.

From my limited knowledge of some of the NRS events: they have A grade (NRS) then b&c for others, sometimes they also run masters. Same format for the women.

Edit: they have been struggling with the Canberra tour so i wouldn't be suprised that they drop the rest. Unfortunate if they did.

I assume not a standard entry race, then. Pro's and similar only? The "entries" page wouldnt work.

It will only be open to NRS riders, if numbers permit also elite A grade individual entries. No B, C or Masters for anyone else.

Entry Priorities:

NRS-Registered Teams
International Teams (maximum of 3 countries can be represented
2 Wild Card Teams (to be chosen by the event organiser)
Individual entries, that must wear their club kit (the event organiser then may choose to group these rides in composite teams)

Note: Field to be limited to 150 riders with priority given to NRS-Registered Teams and as above. Individuals will be prioritised in order of entry and must be an A Grade Elite Rider.

Glad I'm going o/s that weekend instead of delaying the trip one week <phew>

Where are the hills? :roll:

Yet another NRS event that promotes the sprinters skills. Arguable that stage 2 will have climbs long enough to drop the sprinters (would have to see where they put the finish line)

The Saturday road race does a Cotter/Uriarra loop and then heads out through Tidbinbilla and finishes about halfway up Corin Rd so plenty of hills there. The other stages are relatively flat though Lady Denman Dr is pretty "lumpy" for a TT course.

The crit course looks like it will be pretty brutal, I do not envy them at all.
