2022 Bright Brewery Tour of Bright

The Bright Brewery Tour of Bright is iconic. It is one of the most fiercely contested club races on the TAC Victorian Road Series calendar. Amazing alpine scenery, competitive racing and welcoming support from the local cycling club and community. Simply competing and finishing each stage should be considered an accomplishment in itself.

The 2022 Bright Brewery Tour of Bright start list is packed to the rafters with AusCycling National Road Series teams and riders.

There's also a sneaky appearance on the cards from current elite men's national champion and INEOS Grenadiers and Australian Cycling Team star Lucas Plapp.

Huge summer of track begins

December is a blockbuster month for track cycling, with the historic Shimano Sydney Thousand getting the show underway on Saturday, December 10.

The Quest Ivanhoe 125th Austral Wheelrace event follows a week later, full to the brim with talent. The two-day Austral event includes Round 2 of the Sharp EIT Junior Track Series, the 2023 Elite Madison National Championships, the 2023 Elite Omnium National Championships, UCI C1 sprint and keirin racing and of course the Austral Wheelraces.


The iconic Tasmanian Christmas Carnivals bookend the year on the Apple Isle, with Rosebery the first track carnival held on December 17. From December 27 to 31 a mammoth five days of track racing sweeps around Tassie with stops at Hobart, Launceston, Devonport and Burnie.

Wrapped into that five-day slot of racing is three UCI C2 events and the 2023 Elite Elimination National Championships on December 30 in Launceston.

All three events are absolutely stacked with Australia's best track cyclists and several international additions from Europe, New Zealand and North America.

Tasmanian Lauren Perry is locked in for the 2022 TasCarnivals.
