Our Patron for the seventh year is media personality and AFL Coaching Director Danny Frawley. A "Ballarat Boy" by birth, Danny still has very strong connections with the city and the area. The ride will again this year travel through most of the areas where he grew up. Danny is passionate about cancer research having seen both family and close friends be affected by this disease.
Joining Danny is Michael Roberts, another media personality and a passionate supporter of cancer research.
Danny will also bring a number of other celebrities, family and friends to ride in The Classic.
Our sincere thanks to Danny and Michael for their support of the Ballarat Spokes Cycle Classic.
The City of Ballarat once again is a major supporter of this event. The Committee vision is to create a sensational cycling event and at the same time raise much needed funds for the Fiona Elsey Cancer Research Institute. The City has a very strong cycling strategy that complements this event .
Our thanks go to the City of Ballarat for its ongoing support.
