Welcome to the 2017 Victorian Schools Cycling Championships (VSCC).
This is the second of 4 zone finals in the 2017 Road Series. The event is located at the Bendigo Livestock Exchange in Huntly. The exchange will not be trading on the day so riders will be able to race free from traffic. The course is approximately 1km long, so students will be doing multiple laps depending on their age category.

The event is coordinated by Cycling Victoria and the Bendigo & District Cycling Club. Please keep reading for information about the event and program for the day.
