Former triathlete Jesse Featonby (Drapac-EF) has taken the biggest stage race win of his career, winning the most mountainous race of the Australian racing calendar, the Bright Brewery Tour of Bright. In the elite women's it was Emily Roper that continued her stellar form from the back half of the National Road Series, celebrating the victory in the event that contains the infamous climb of Mt Hotham.
After the 2017 Tour of Bright was cancelled due to dangerous weather conditions, the 2018 Tour of Bright came around with much anticipation amongst the Victorian racing community.
Featonby won the men's A-Grade by 28 seconds from BMC stagiare Alexander Evans (Mobius-Bridgelane) with Michael Potter (Australian Cycling Academy) third at 44 seconds in arrears.
Roper beat out Tour of Tasmania winner Justine Barrow (Rush Womens) and Michaela Parsons to the win in what was a small field for the women's event.
