State Competition

Albury Wodonga Cycling Club are proud to present the SS&A 36th John Woodman Memorial Wagga to Albury Cycling Classic.  The event is run in memory of John Woodman, an exceptional cyclist who was tragically killed whilst training in 1986.

This iconic race runs through the undulating countryside between Wagga Wagga and Albury for 131km.  It has been won by many terrific cyclists including multiple Grand Tour Stage Winner, Michael Matthews in 2008. 

A handicap race of this distance challenges even the hardiest of cyclists and beware if the cross winds begin to blow! Be a part of one of the few point to point handicap races left on the Australian Cycling Calendar.
