On Saturday 7 January Australia held its national amateur road cycling championships, including a National Gran Fondo Championship race on the famous 11.5km Mt. Buninyong circuit in Ballarat.

The challenging 58 kilometer “climber friendly” route included five ascents of the 3km Mt Buninyong climb with gradients up to 10 percent. After the first ascent the field was shredded, with solo riders and small groups fighting to survive each and every lap until reaching the finish.

Below are the final results.
