Race Melbourne

The new race on Australia Day

Tired legs from Down Under? Nah, no chance, get on down rolling again to Albert Park in Melbourne for a circuit race.

The race took place on the F1 track, which as many tired faces told us, was off from the gun and unrelenting. Sam Bennett took the win in the mens race and Kirsten Wild unstoppable in the women’s: a day for the sprinters before the inevitable shelling out on the climbs of the Cadel Evans race this weekend.

More importantly, its Australia Day. Meaning FULL AUSSIE FASHION MODE GOING ON. So many flags. So many. Anyway: quick gallery below, a great first edition of the race and to be sure this thing will be huge in the coming years.
