CY­CLING: The Auswide Bank In­ter­na­tional Cy­cling Spec­tac­u­lar or­gan­is­ers hope Jan­uary can re­main the date for the event.

The Spec­tac­u­lar was held this month af­ter date clashes with other cy­cling events pre­vented it from be­ing held in De­cem­ber.

Or­gan­iser Ja­son Tem­ple­man said the suc­cess of the event made this month a fan­tas­tic date for it.

“It’s proven this week­end that Jan­uary has been really good for rid­ers,” Tem­ple­man said.

“We’ve just got to look at tim­ing of cal­en­dars and we’ve got to fit around state or na­tional ti­tles.”

Tem­ple­man said the dates could be fi­nalised soon and set per­ma­nently to al­low rid­ers and fans to plan.

“We want to have our event locked on an x, y and z date on a 12 month ro­ta­tion ba­sis,” he said.

“We’ll have a sig­nif­i­cant an­nounce­ment of those dates in three to four weeks.”
