Round 3 of the 2017 ‘Towards Zero’ Victorian Road Series took place in testing conditions on Sunday, with more than 150 riders taking part in the Mt Baw Baw Alpine Resort Classic.

Riders encountered rain, wind, sleet, sunshine, and even snow on their 103km journey from Warragul to the top of Mt Baw Baw. The course is hard enough in fine conditions – so congratulations are certainly in order for all riders who conquered the mountain and the elements.

Congratulations to the 2017 Baw Baw Classic podium placegetters…
