“As the cycling world turns its eyes towards Adelaide for the first WorldTour event of the year, and then Victoria for the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race, it is fantastic for the Subaru NRS season to be able to share the international stage.” – Cycling Australia CEO Nick Green
The women’s field will see the return of Australian national team member Taryn Heather (Bicycle Superstore), who has spent the past four years abroad, and her return comes as Lizzie Williams (Specialized Securitor) and Chloe McConville (Jayco/Apollo/VIS) depart to join the Pro ranks of Orica-AIS in 2015.
The Subaru Women’s National Road Series is a ten race series (*now nine) with races in NSW, Victoria, South Australia, ACT and Tasmania, and ACT.
