This permanent fixture on the Australian road race calendar consistently draws in excess of 350 elite cyclists to compete on a challenging 96km or 167km course across the Main Range.

An iconic race, it is known for its energy-sapping crosswind as it rolls through the foothills of the Continental Plateau west of Gatton, challenging 570m ascent of the Main Range, and blustery headwinds that push riders to the limit and make heroes of those seeking an individual breakaway to Warwick.

As winner of the inaugural Cycling Queensland Event of the Year in 2011, the Kangaroo Point Cycling Club’s Cunningham Classic has cemented its reputation as the toughest and most unforgiving classic one-day road race in Queensland.

The Cunningham Classic will return on Saturday 02 August 2014.
