Sport has always been at the heart of Deakin, and is one of our greatest strengths.
Enjoy a weekend of first-class road racing by getting among the action as a volunteer at the annual Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race.
Held from 30 January–2 February 2020, the event is inspired by the prestigious ‘spring classics’ of Europe, and is once again set to deliver intense competition with some of the world’s best cycling on display
The 2020 event will see the Deakin University Elite Women’s Road Race become part of the UCI Women’s World Tour calendar – the pinnacle of world cycling – for the first time.
Set in the picturesque yet challenging terrain of Geelong and the Surf Coast, the race demands riders who can tackle steep climbs and cross winds while hitting incredibly high speeds.
‘The skill, endurance and attitude of these female athletes is truly inspirational,’ says Deakin Vice-Chancellor Iain Martin.
