Tigerland takes shape

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

This year we are moving our headquarters and race village to Nannup for a special version of the Tour that we are calling “Tigerland”. The routes for the 2017 Tour will feature some of our absolute favourite roads in WA, all specially selected to be challenging, scenic and safe. The Tour begins with two days of riding commencing on Wednesday November 8th. These days will be an opportunity for participants to mix with our professional riders in a relaxed atmosphere and take in the scenery that is often missed in the hectic environment of racing. The three racing stages of the Tour will commence on Friday November 10th with a Team Time Trial that will classify teams into race groups for the rest of the Tour.

Numerous accommodation options exist in and around Nannup and we will be establishing our own camping village within the town. The townships of Margaret River, Busselton, Bridgetown, Balingup and Manjimup are all located within 40 minutes drive of race start lines and all have good options for accommodation as well.  Book early though, as we anticipate the whole region being sold out for the duration of the Tour. To help with planning, teams still have the option to secure a place in the 2017 Tour via the payment of a $200 deposit. Registrations will officially open on June 1st 2017 and close on July 1st 2017, or when the race is full. Please follow this link to secure a place for your team in the 2017 Tour.
