About The 1 In 20

The 1 in 20 is one of Victoria’s most popular climbs and stretches 6.7km from The Basin towards the Dandenong Ranges at an average gradient of 4%. It starts off at a reasonable tilt, and then riders are rewarded with an approximately 1km false-flat segment. It finishes similarly to how it starts, with the steady 3-4% climbing punctuated by some steeper bursts.

The 2019 Noosa Classic will be Bicycling Australia's 6th Gran Fondo event after 3 x Bowral Classics, last year's inaugural Clare Classic in South Australia, and last year's debut Noosa Classic. For full details and to register visit

Shimano may have been late to the game releasing their first 12-speed drivetrain, but after spending some trail-time aboard it, there's no denying that the new XTR is worth the wait.

Focus has approached the E-MTB category in a markedly different way to its rivals by focusing on bike first and battery second. Is it the right approach?

Like them or loathe them, the E-MTB is here to stay and whether you are an elite racer or weekend FROTHER there is a place in everyone’s garage for one of these beasts.
