Rolling Road Closures and Cut Off Times
A rolling road closures will be implemented by Victoria Police.
Please be aware that at the discretion of Victoria Police, riders off the back of the main peloton may be deemed to be outside the race envelope.
A maximum time gap of 15 minutes will be allowed before riders will be classed as outside of the road closure and therefore out of the race. NO EXCEPTIONS
Victoria Police, along with the commissaires will monitor and issue infringements to riders not obeying Victorian road rules when outside of the race envelope
In an instance where a breakaway occurs and the race envelope stretches to beyond 15 minutes Victoria Police will apply the following ruling:
- If the majority of riders are in the breakaway group, the Police tail car will begin passing riders, therefore placing riders outside of the road closure.
- If the majority of riders are in the main peloton, Victoria Police will instruct through the race director for the peloton to increase the pace of the race and shorten the breakaway gap.
Riders and team managers need to ensure instructions from the Race Director are followed. The Event Permit and Victoria Police resourcing allow for a road closure envelope of 15mins.
Victoria Police have the power and have indicated that the race will be abandoned if riders fail to obey instructions when it comes to managing the race envelope
Cut off points for the 2020 Powercor Melbourne to Warrnambool will be advised soon.

SRAM Neutral Race Support will provide neutral race support for the duration of the race.
Spares will be shadowing the commissaire vehicles and provide Neutral Support for riders in all categories.
There will be three vehicles and one van used to provide this service. These vehicles will be clearly marked and located near the teams parking area close to the start line.
It is strongly recommended however that all riders not in the NRS category carry a pump and spare tube should you fall behind a spares vehicle and the next one is some distance away.
Best endeavours will be made to service riders as quickly as possible.
Neutral Spares will not be responsible for any loss of time due to riders having to wait for service to continue.
Remember, support vehicles for graded riders will not be allowed to follow the race convoy. This will be managed by Victoria Police so we encourage all graded riders to plan accordingly to make use of this service.
The women’s category will have a dedicated mechanic servicing the women entrants.
