The website hasn't really explained it very well.
Do people want a race thread for the Men's Road Race or just keep live and pre-race commentary in this thread?
It's 3 times around the long loop, then 11 times around the shorter loop. 14 times up Mt Bunninyong, 195.8 K. Has usually been 16 times around the short loop, 16 times up the climb, 163.2K. So 2 fewer times the climb, but 30 + K longer race. Don't see how it will change much, still favours hard man.
