Cycling race needs marshals

For those who want to be part of Ryder Hesjedal’s Tour de Victoria, but aren’t sure they want to endure the 140- or 90-kilometre routes, here’s your chance.

The tour needs about 300 road marshals to make sure cyclists stay on course and aren’t hindered in their ride by spectators or other obstacles.

The cycling event’s main road race will see about 1,500 riders zipping around the region on May 28 with Hesjedal and fellow Olympians Simon Whitfield, Silken Laumann and Andreas Hestler.
