The prologue will be individual riders leaving at timed intervals I presume, which means it’ll be a great little circuit for spectating. They could do it alleycat style though; get the riders to pile their bikes on the lawn, give them a count down and let them scramble en masse.
The first stage will be great, a 2.5km tt in the city on a Wednesday night.
It’s a shame the next two stages are point to pint and won’t be very spectator friendly,
Stage four is in the middle if no where but 5 will be great.
Just saw this - you can get yourself a cow bell at the Amy Gillett Foundation marquee…
The AGF will be at Federation Square where you can come passed and sign the #ametrematters petition, pick up some stickers and even make a donation towards improving the safety of cycling in Australia.
As a special treat from Subaru, for a gold coin donation you’ll be able to grab one of these great cow bells to help you cheer all the riders! Just visit the AGF marquee.
Ended up around at the hairpin at the most eastern point of the circuit, then moved around to that mental chicane on the bike path where the really committed riders were bunny-hopping the manhole cover.
Most folks seem to be pretty jazzed to see something like that in town. The media-hyped bike-hate was absent as well which I was pleased with. Really nice spot for it really - from a spectator POV.
Also great to see Will Clarke throw down another good ride.
