Coach Cadel could be in your corner

You might get by with a banana and a few light stretches for your Saturday morning ride. But have you ever wondered what it takes to train, eat and prepare for the world’s toughest cycling races?

Deakin and the Cadel Road Race are giving one lucky cycling fan the chance to find out, with a personalised coaching session with 2011 Tour de France winner, Cadel Evans.

This incredible all-access experience will take place at our state-of-the-art sport science labs at the Geelong Waurn Ponds campus on Tuesday 28 January 2020. Here's what you can look forward to on the day:

  • a 2 hour one-on-one session with Cadel and Deakin’s sport scientists
  • expert advice on how you can improve your technique and performance on the bike
  • training tips tailored to your needs and interests – learn about any aspect of Cadel’s preparation, from strength and conditioning to what he packs in his bag for a big race.

If you live in lycra and love hitting the open road, this is an unmissable opportunity to take your training up a gear alongside Australia’s greatest ever cyclist.
