Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race
In 2017 Sport Projects were appointed event management supplier for the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race. This is an incredible opportunity – a large scale, high-profile public road event requiring some complex logistical planning and careful stakeholder management – right in our sweet spot. Running across four days this event is a ‘festival of cycling’ encompassing one day of cycling in Melbourne and three days in Geelong. As an internationally recognised cycling event featuring a UCI World Tour men’s race and UCI 1.1 women’s race it attracts some of the best cycling talent in the world. In addition to the elite racing there is also a ‘People’s Ride’ drawing up to 4,000 amateur cyclists, across a wide range of ages and abilities and a Family Ride.
In our first year running this event in 2018 we were proud to deliver an excellent spectator and participant experience. From the Belgian kermesse style racing on the iconic Formula One circuit at Albert Park, two days of action-packed ‘classics’ racing across the Geelong and Surf Coast regions through to the People’s Ride, this event saw all cyclists, novice to elite, sharing the roads in a celebration of cycling.
We are excited to organise the event once again for 2019, in addition to the professional racing and the people’s ride there will also be a family ride and attractions for kids of all ages. We hope to see you there!
Australian Adventure Festival
Olivia Newton-John Cancer Centre Wellness Walk and Research Run
Sport Projects have been involved with the Olivia Newton John Wellness walk since 2016, this year we are proud to have extended this involvement, taking on entire event management. Over the past two years we have assisted Austin Health in broadening the reach of their wellness walk with the addition of a fun run component. Looking to exploit a newly formed partnership with Latrobe University, the course was moved from the busy streets of Ivanhoe to the beautiful, quiet internal roads of the university’s Melbourne campus in Bundoora. To ensure a smooth and successful course transition we provided course design, development and management, including staffing and the contracting and supervision of a traffic management supplier.
The result was an immensely enjoyable event, positive feedback on the new and unique courses and hundreds of new entrants and fundraisers entering the event.
In 2018 we will use the experience, knowledge and strong relationships developed over the past two years to deliver a smooth, seamless, and fun event, extending to stage management across the day and the creation of an engaging event village experience. A special day for a special cause.
Six Day Series
The Six Day Series is track cycling with a twist. It has been electrifying crowds throughout Europe and now it is Australia’s turn. In 2019 Melbourne and Brisbane will host ‘Six-Day’ events and Sport Projects will manage them both, working closely with Madison Sports Group, based in London. We are excited to be involved in such an innovative, fun and hugely popular event, that will contribute so much to the event landscape and the Melbourne and Brisbane cycling communities.
“Beers, Bikes and Beats” is a great fit with the Australian event and cycling scene and will revolutionalise the delivery of track cycling in Australia
The lights get turned down and the music turned up, as Six Day Cycling combines the very best in track cycling with an incredible party atmosphere.
