Shared by |tags, , ,

Registrations are open for Tasmania's cycling event the Launceston Pro-Ex, which offers recreational cyclists and groups the chance to "live like a pro" and ride with some of the world's best professional cyclists!

The week long cycling experience will travel through the landscapes of Tasmania from November 25 to December 2 in a weekly all inclusive package.

The package includes seven nights accommodation (twin share), all meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner), refreshments on daily rides, airport transfers to Launceston airport and a rider pro pack (jersey, backpack, socks, cap and more) among other great inclusions.

The race is open to cyclers of all abilities and is a great opportunity for participants to live and breathe the life of a pro cycler.

The official Launceston Pro-Ex mentors for 2012 have been announced with Nathan Haas, Campbell 'Flakey' Flakemore and Nathan Earle taking up the challenge as well as Tasmania's very own Wesley Sulzberger.

Haas is a member of the Garmin-Sharp UCI World Professional Cycling Team and was the winner for the 2011 Herald Sun Tour. He originally begun his career as a mountain biker, representing Australia in two world championships.

Launceston-born Sulzberger is part of the Orica-GreenEDGE UCI World Professional Cycling Team and won a silver medal in 2007 at the Under 23 World Road Race Championships.

Earle is part of the Genesys Wealth Advisers Cycling Team and has recovered from surgery on a broken ankle to join the Pro-Ex this year as a mentor.

Earle's Genesys Wealth Advisers Cycling teammate 'Flakey' is also a mentor for this year's event, and took bronze in this year's Under 23 Time Trial National Championships. Flakey has returned from Europe after racing as a representative of the Under 23 Australian Cycling Team.

So get to training and have your bike gear ready for November 25 at 2012's Launceston Pro-Ex.
