2019 courses will be announced soon!




Stage 1: Individual Time Trial
The Truffle Farm, Majura.  |  Saturday 13thOctober 2018

NCT18 kicks off with an Individual Time Trial Stage on one of Canberra’s flattest courses. The -1.1% gradient will see speeds in excess of 60km/h in the first 6km, before the real work begins at the turn around. TT bikes will be a plus, but the nature of the course will give riders on road bikes a fighting chance. The stage will also decide the Masters Classification for those of Masters 4,5,6, and 7+ (Men/Women) age.

All grades will be covering one lap of a 11.9km out and back course.
Start times will be released in the week leading up to the event.

Note regarding the MC, MD, and WB Stage 3 Course:

* Please note due to an unconfirmed event potentially being held at the AIS in the afternoon, the Men’s C, Men’s D and Women’s B course may turn just before the Braybrooke Street round-a-bout. This section of road is 3 lanes wide, and so if the separate AIS event does go ahead, an artificial roundabout will be built out of bollards at the turn-around point. If the separate event at AIS does not go ahead, the MC, MD and WB course will be the same as MA, MB and WA (turning around the permanent round-a-bout at Baybrooke Street).
