Round 2

Round 2 | Warwick | 6th & 7th October, 2018

Warwick

Boasting of stunning scenery and an agricultural hub, Warwick is the host of the second round of the Queensland Road Team Series for 2018.

The weekend of racing will consist of the Prologue and Criterium on Saturday, and Road Race on Sunday.

Make a weekend of it!

There’s plenty to do and see in Warwick, from historical sites to art galleries. Be sure to check out the Glengallan Homestead and Southern Downs Steam Railway.

Or perhaps you are looking for something a little more adventurous? Explore the Leslie Dam, see the rock carvings and walk by the water. There are plenty of fantastic trails to hike in the nearby Condamine Gorge.

Street Sprint:

New to the series this year at the request of the local Council, the QRTS Round 2 presents the Street Sprint. The Street Sprint is a 200m flat, fast CBD based activation stage, which is a moment for teams to display their sprinting talent, and for the township to enjoy some fast, spectator friendly, knockout racing. 

Set on Palmerin Street, the Street Sprint proceeds with knockout heats, semi-finals, and a grand final. 

Each team has the opportunity to nominate two riders, whilst also accruing 10 points for their participation. 

There will be one-minute time gaps between the sprints, and five minutes between categories. 

Team managers must nominate their two rides by Saturday morning at Registration.
