Noosa Triathlon Multi Sport Festival – Celebrating 25 Years
31 October – 4 November
As part of the 25th Anniversary Noosa Triathlon Multi Sport Festival we preview two of the premier events on the program. Below is a snippet on the Men’s and Women’s Cycling Program. Full media releases are attached along with the fields.
Women ride into Noosa history
As part of the birthday celebrations for the Noosa Triathlon Multi Sport Festival, the women are set to scorch the streets with the inaugural Cannibal Women’s Grand Prix cycling.
For many years we’ve seen the men light up Noosa Parade, but now it is the lady’s turn to show us what they are made of.
Saturday 3 November, 2007 on the legendary Noosa hotdog course, Australia’s best women’s riders will lay it all on the line in 30 minutes and three laps of fast and furious racing.
Ridleys Dash for Cash
Australia’s international superstars of cycling are returning to Noosa on 3 November for the Ridley Dash for Cash, in a $50,000 winner take all bonanza.
With the coveted Noosa title up for grabs, reputations on the line and two $5,000 primes provided by Cateye, the competitors will be putting the hurt on each other with every lap.
The involvement of Ridley, one of Europe’s biggest names in bicycle design and manufacture, and the massive cash incentives, ensures that the biggest names from the Tour De France (TDF) and other cycling classics will all be there.
