The Peter Blackshaw Real Estate Women’s and Junior Tour is Australia’s premier junior tour.
The historic event is held on some of the territory’s most scenic and varied terrain, including closed roads and dedicated cycle racing infrastructure. It continues to be an important development race for tomorrow’s champions, having being previously targeted by yesterday’s aspiring athletes including Caleb Ewan, Amanda Spratt, Gracie Elvin and more.
About the tour in 2019
The 2019 Canberra Junior & Women’s Tour is part of the National Junior Road Series.
The 2019 edition of the Peter Blackshaw Real Estate Canberra Junior & Women’s Tour #CJWT19 will see riders battle it out for up to four jerseys, replicating the jersey classifications of a grand tour.
The 2019 edition will favour the complete rider, progressively challenging a wide range of abilities in the older age groups, and keeping it fun and achievable for the younger ages. Contested on widely varied terrain, all types of rider will have a chance to shine, from the modest, scenic climbs of Uriarra Forest, to the wide, technical purpose-built criterium circuit.
The 2019 Tour will be held almost exclusively on closed roads, with the presence and support of the Australian Federal Police, ACT Ambulance Services, as well as first aid and Cycling ACT commissaires, moto-commissaires, and volunteer lead and spares vehicles. U15 & below will be held 100% on closed roads.
The U19 category continues to be an integral part of the event in 2019, whilst the Participation category will offer kids as young as 5 the chance to dip their toes in the water and have some weekend fun with other kids. U19M will be restricted to U19 gear rollout, whilst U19W will not as this category will race together with Women’s A.
