The nation's best head to Ballarat in January to fight for Australian road cycling's most hallowed prize, the green and gold jersey, including for the first time, cyclists with an intellectual impairment. 

It all kicks off with the time trials on Wednesday 8 January - or in 54 days - for the men's and women's Under-19s, Under-23s, elite, cyclists with an intellectual impairment and Para categories.

A revamped time trial course at Federation University's Mt Helen Campus will bring fans closer to the riders and will also play host to food trucks and other festival fare on the Wednesday evening. 

Christophe and Macca were at the official launch for the latest episode of the Zwift Cycling Central Podcast:
