Women Junior Road Race

Women Junior Road Race

Opening the final Saturday of the UCI Road World Championships, the Women Junior Road Race will be a test of stamina and strategy.

The peloton will take on the Wollongong City Circuit, starting on Marine Drive and heading anti-clockwise throughout the city streets before climbing into the fringe of the escarpment at Mount Pleasant. 

As with the Time Trial, the final assault will take place on Squires Way, leading to the coast-front Cliff Road and eventually concluding on Marine Drive.

Format of events

Road Race: The event is a single ‘mass start’ road race, the winner being the first across the line at the completion of the full race distance. This is usually conducted as a circuit race of approximately 15 -25km which may start from another point before entering the circuit

Individual time trial (ITT): An event in which cyclists race alone against the clock on flat or rolling terrain, or up a mountain road. Cyclists start the race at different times so that each start is fair and equal

Team time trial mixed relay (TTT): A road-based bicycle race in which teams of cyclists race against the clock. Cyclists start the race at different times so that each start is fair and equal
