The Port Douglas Grand Fondo will be held for the first time ever this September, attracting cyclists from across Australia and around the world. The three-day festival will include a Grand Fondo, Criterium, Sprint and Family Ride in one of the most loved places in Australia – Port Douglas.
The opportunity to ride along Great Barrier Reef Drive, one of the most spectacular coastal roads in Australia, completely free of traffic will be the big drawcard. But that is really just the perfect excuse to visit Port Douglas as there is so much to see and do in the region.
Premax is a proud partner, with many of our products coming in very useful for the riders and staff. “With average daytime temperatures of 28-29 degrees in September the Premax Sunscreen will come in very handy. Then for the ride, the Premax Chamois cream for men and women will be a must to make the 136km or 100km Gran Fondo rides even more comfortable. After the ride we’d recommend using the Premax Recovery Cream to help your muscles recover while relaxing by the resort pool” says Bade Stapleton, Managing Director of Connect Sport & the Port Douglas Grand Fondo.
Bade and the team also want everyone to stop and really take in the spectacular views along the way. So, there will be a Premax Photo Competition throughout the day. The best photo taken at each Aid Station using the correct hashtags and posted to either Instagram or Facebook will win an amazing prize pack from us!
Watch out on our socials as we’ll feature some of the best photos over the weekend!
The event is being held from the 9th to 11th September, 2022. Good luck to everyone from Premax!
