2020 YUNCA JUNIOR TOUR OF SOUTHLAND
Friday 2 October to Sunday 4 October
First introduced to the region in 1984, the Yunca Tour has progressed significantly throughout the years and with the fine commitment by the event’s major sponsor – YUNCA - accompanied by a dedicated team of volunteers, has ensured the longevity and undoubted success of the event.
This year will see some new stages come on board as the Tour travels to Wyndham for the opening two stages, then down to Bluff for the next two stages, with the infamous Bluff Hill featuring as an uphill time trial on day two! The ever-popular inner city criterium stays in place to kick off day three, with the challenging final stage remaining the same as well, ensuring that the overall winner will be a rider who can perform on all front. No wonder this is such a highly regarded and sought after title!
Adding to the attraction of the event, this year the Yunca Junior Tour of Soutland will be followed by the National and South Island Secondary Schools Track Championships (6-7 October) and the third and final round of the National Track Series (9-11 October).
