The Stan Siejka Classic in Tasmania on 27 November will be the farewell race for three long-time pros, Matt Goss (ONE Pro Cycling) and Sulzberger brothers Wes (Kinan Cycling) and Bernie (Drapac).
“It basically all kicked off from that crit a few years ago; beating a few pros at that time gave me a start, so I thought it was kind of fitting to back and finish in the same place,” said Goss, who announced his retirement in September.
“I will still ride socially, but professionally that will be it for me. It will be a pretty good way to go out,” Bernie Sulzberger said. “Matt and I started riding about the same time growing up together in Flowery Gully so it will be good to go out together. I’ve done the race a few times and my best result is third so it would be nice to improve on that.”
The younger Sulzberger Wes, 30, is retiring to focus on his coaching business.
The event usually attracts many top Australian pros, and even had Chris Froome race in 2015.
