The Ring Summer Criterium Cycling Series returns in 2019, with the City of Mandurah proudly presenting the first round of the new series.
Now in its third year, the event is the pinnacle of summer racing in Western Australia, consisting of fully closed roads, roaring crowds and an electric event atmosphere. The Ring celebrates the best of WA cycling with a high quality
racing experience for new riders, all the way through to elite A graders.
The Ring Summer Criterium Series is a safe and inclusive environment that works towards the common goal of involving more people in racing and creating a positive experience for everyone involved.
In 2019, the Ring will go to another level, with all five events in the series being raced on fully closed roads creating a European town-centre style of criterium.
Round one of the series will be held in Mandurah on Sunday, 3 February 2019 from 12pm to 6pm. Located just 45-minutes south of Perth, Mandurah provides the perfect setting for a criterium with its beautiful ocean views and incredible weather.
Cycling events have proven to be financially beneficial to local business and tourism. The April 2017 Ring event in Leederville attracted over 5,000 spectators, with local businesses reporting an increase of 13% in trade on the day of the event.
WestCycle CEO Matt Fulton said the City of Mandurah has been very supportive in bringing the first round of the 2019 Ring Summer Criterium Series to fruition.
“The course is truly spectacular and will provide a fantastic experience for riders and spectators along the sweeping Mandurah foreshore. Events like the Mandurah Super Criterium set a new standard for cycling events in Western Australia,” Mr Fulton said.
City of Mandurah Deputy Mayor Caroline Knight said we are so excited to be hosting the first round of the new series here in Mandurah.
“Bringing events like this to Mandurah help support local businesses and boost our economy.
“This is also a great opportunity for competitors and visitors to experience and enjoy our beautiful city,” Ms Knight said.
