2025 UCI Gran Fondo World Championships

The Surf Coast will play host to the world’s best amateur road cyclists when one of the sport’s biggest international calendars comes to the Great Ocean Road.

The 2025 races coincide with Amy’s Great Ocean Road Gran Fondo and will tackle the same course through the Otway Ranges and along the Great Ocean Road. Lorne will host a major event hub and the start/finish line of a road race and time trial during the weekend, while a team relay event will take place at the Geelong Waterfront.

The UCI Gran Fondo is the culmination of a world series incorporating 27 global qualifying events leading to invites for the top competitors to compete for medals and the coveted rainbow world champion’s jersey.

About 3,200 participants and crew are expected for the 2025 event.
