Course Description:

The 2019 Launceston Criterion course will again circumnavigate the beautiful Launceston City Park in a clockwise direction. The rider and spectator feedback on this course has been outstanding with the challenge of the “wall” up Lawrence Street to the “peanut” roundabout already a favourite aspect for everyone.​

All events including the 2019 Stan Siejka Cycling Classic, Elite Women’s Cycling Classic,  Elite Masters Cycling Classic and Veterans will be raced around this exciting and challenging course.
The course is approximately 1.1km and includes the short but punchy climb up Lawrence St. (peaking at 16%), followed by the technical roundabout, which will be packed with cheering spectators, resulting in a European style cauldron of noise, atmosphere and celebration.  Upon exiting the roundabout, riders lead into a fast descent of Brisbane, Tamar & Cimitiere Streets before it all starts again!  The start/finish line is on Brisbane Street, a short stretch after the roundabout.
