NZ's Premier Professional Cycling Tour

The NZ Cycle Classic has been an annual sporting fixture for over three decades and is recognised as the premier international road cycling event in New Zealand. Each year the NZ Cycle Classic unearths new talent, and a number of these riders have gone on to win stages in the Tour de France, the Giro d'Italia, world championships, Commonwealth Games and Olympics.
