Australian RoadNats is back!

Being a proudly Australian-founded company, FulGaz is excited to be watching RoadNats this week in Ballarat and Buninyong.

For the first time in a few years we’re going to see a full complement of Aussie riders with the likes of Luke Durbridge, Luke Plapp, and FulGaz ambassador Brodie Chapman who are all looking forward to the championship week.

“Nationals are something very special for Aussie pro-riders. We don’t get many chances to race in front of a home crowd and to have the support of mum, dad and the rest of the family there is always amazing.” Said Brodie. 

“It’s also my first major race repping the new Trek-Segafredo colours, with a brand new bike and riding with some new teammates, so I’m looking forward to see what I can do and have a nudge at the title this year.”

Here’s a selection of our favourite sections of the RoadNats time trial, gran fondo, and of course, the fearsome road race.

Find all these rides in the FulGaz App.

AUSTRALIAN ELITE WOMEN'S AND U23 TT

Whilst shorter than the Elite Men’s version, this is a tough all-round test of a rider’s ability to race well against the clock. There’s hardly a flat piece of road, but there’s nothing so steep and long that it could be called a pure climber’s course either. Strong winds will play a part too.
