Entry Information HERE

All the glamour and colour of international cycle racing will sweep past the doorsteps and farm gates of many people in the Wairarapa. 

From January 20 to 24 the New Zealand Cycle Classic gets set to thrill spectators for its 29th year.

The New Zealand Cycle Classic – an annual sporting fixture for the past twenty eight years and recognised as the premier international road cycling event in New Zealand. 

Each year the Cycle Classic unearths new talent, and a number of those riders have gone on to win stages in the Tour de France, the Tour of Italy and world championships among others.

The Wairarapa region has to be one of the best areas for cycling in this country. It’s really “the best place to ride a bike” in New Zealand and we are very privileged to stage this international event in the wonderful region of Wairarapa once again.


Overseas teams wanting to be considered for receiving an invitation to the event please contact the event organisers.

New Zealand domestic teams or individual riders must enter as soon as possible to secure a start in the 2016 event.

Individual riders who enter the tour will be place on composite teams.
