The Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race also known as Great Ocean Road Race or Cadel Road Race is an annual professional one-day road bicycle racing for both men and women starting and finishing in Geelong, Victoria, Australia, and routed along the picturesque Great Ocean Road .

The organisers of the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race appear to be remaining hopeful that the women's and men's one-day races scheduled for the last weekend of January may still be able to go ahead, despite the coronavirus pandemic, but will come to a decision "in the coming weeks".

"We are continuing to work through our plans to bring a COVID-19 safe event to the Geelong, Bellarine and Surf Coast regions in January 2021," an event spokesperson said via email when contacted by Cyclingnews on Friday. "We are working closely with our stakeholders to ensure that a safe event can be held next year and expect to be able to make decisions regarding the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race in the coming weeks."

Edinburgh Fringe bosses say audiences suffering from 'digital fatigue'

  Edinburgh Fringe bosses say audiences suffering from 'digital fatigue' The world famous arts event was cancelled for the first time this summer, but the Fringe Society said venues may not be able to reopen next year if two metre social distancing remains. Organisers said the 2021 festival will be a mix of live and digital events - but said audiences are getting frustrated with online content which they don't want to pay for.The impact of the pandemic on Edinburgh's festivals was explored in an online conference hosted by the city's Napier University.

The 2019 Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race was a road cycling one-day race that took place on 27 January 2019 in Geelong, Australia. It was the fifth edition of the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race and the second event of the 2019 UCI World Tour.

Italian road race champion Elia Viviani (Deceuninck-QuickStep) went won better than the previous year to win the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race in 2019. He beat the home favourite – Lotto Soul's Caleb Ewan – in Geelong, Australia, and had no doubt about who to thank after managing to get over

Meanwhile, despite rumours of a cancellation, the organisers of the Tour Down Under women's and men's stage races have made no further comment beyond Tuesday's press release, in which Events South Australia executive director Hitaf Rasheed said that a decision regarding the two races – set to take place from January 14-17 and 19-24, respectively – would be announced "within the next week".

She added that the organisation had "also been considering alternate scenarios if we are unable to deliver the Santos Tour Down Under with UCI men's and women's races in January, including how to present cycling in some format in South Australia in January".

The major obstacle for both the Tour Down Under and the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race is whether Europe's top teams will be able to – or want to – travel to Australia to compete.

Every new Star Wars movie and TV show confirmed so far

  Every new Star Wars movie and TV show confirmed so far Here's the low-down on all the new Star Wars movies coming our way over the next few years When are the upcoming Star Wars movies coming out? That's a harder question to answer than you may imagine. Ever since Star Wars: The Force Awakens launched the sequel trilogy back in 2015, there's been a new Star Wars movie every year. Yet, we're now going through a major dry spell – with no big-screen Star Wars adventures until 2023. And we have no idea what to expect from that movie. The future of Star Wars, for the meantime, is not in cinemas.

Cyclingnews understands that the AIGCP teams' association surveyed the teams on whether they would be willing to travel to Australia and accept a 14-day quarantine upon arrival, but most teams said that they did not want to travel. Riders and staff would also likely have to quarantine upon returning to their homes in Europe, creating another obstacle to teams participating.

While the UK recorded 280 more deaths due to the coronavirus on Thursday – and the USA had 1,016 deaths on Wednesday – Australia has been less severely affected, with the state of Victoria, where the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race takes place, having recorded a total of 819 deaths since the start of the year, with 20,344 cases of COVID-19.

That makes it by far the worst-affected state, and both the men's and women's editions of the 2021 Herald Sun Tour stage race – which also take place in Victoria, normally in early February – have already been cancelled.

Many borders between Australia's states have been closed during the pandemic, but some restrictions in Victoria's state capital of Melbourne have recently been eased, with pubs, cafés and restaurants permitted to reopen this weekend.

Nationwide, there have been 27, 569 positive cases of the coronavirus, with 907 deaths.

South Australia – with the Tour Down Under taking place there, in and around the state capital of Adelaide each year – has recorded 495 cases of COVID-19 since the start of the year, and four deaths.

Cyclingnews has contacted the Tour Down Under for further comment, but had not received a response at the time of publication.
