Nearly 200 riders to roll out for this weekend’s M2W

The 2023 Melbourne to Warrnambool runs Feb 4 & 5 2023

Victoria’s Summer of Cycling will finish with a crescendo as nearly 200 male and female riders will line up for their tilt at one of the sports oldest and grandest titles.

This Saturday February 4 and Sunday February 5 2023 will see participants competing across a festival of cycling, with the two main races bolstered by the locally hosted Warrnambool KFC Criterium and The Royal Bikes Port Campbell to Warrnambool Handicap events.

The provisional start lists below showcase international and local riders who have signed up for the 107th edition of the Powercor Melbourne to Warrnambool over 267 kilometres, and the second iteration of the ‘instant classic’ Lochard Energy Warrnambool Women’s Cycling Classic – one of the longest one-day road races in the world for women at 160 kilometres.

And while the field is wide open and the ‘Warrny’ is full of fairytale finishes, it seems in the women’s Chloe Hosking, Peta Mullins, Gina Ricardo, Alli Anderson and Lucinda Stewart will lead the charge while in the men’s Kane Richards, Graeme Frislie, Elliot Schultz, Lachlan Morton and Connor Sens will be the ones to watch.

Join us at the start, the finish or along the road with friends, family and fans as some of the best in the nation battle it out for the honour of being called a ‘Warrny’ winner.
