For the fourth year, the Gravel and Tar Classic UCI 1.2 event will be held over the beautiful roads of the Manawatu region.

This year the racing starts at Feilding's Manchester Square, and once
again will finish at Memorial Park in Palmerston North.
The Gravel and Tar Classic race is a 130km international elite men’s cycling race with five gravel sectors making up approximately 40km.
It is gaining the reputation as the hardest single day road race in the Oceania region.

In 2018, after two years of successfully running the Gravel and Tar Classic, the event organisers were awarded 1.2 status of the race by the UCI world governing body.
It was the only UCI 1.2 race on the Oceania calendar in 2018, and only the second one day race behind the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road race (UCI 1.1), which will be held in Australia the weekend following the Gravel and Tar 2019.
