HBS TO PRODUCE FAREWELL FOR CYCLING LEGEND
HBS will once again work with McGuire Media (MM) and Gearhouse Broadcast Pty. Ltd (GHB) in Australia this weekend to produce coverage of the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race – the 2011 Tour de France winner’s last competitive race before his retirement.
Organised by Victoria Major Events Company (VMEC), the 174 km long race – on Sunday 1 February – is an officially sanctioned UCI Men’s Elite Race and will pass through Evans’ hometown of Barwon Heads on a route which starts and finishes on the Geelong waterfront.
While MM are the production suppliers and GHB are in charge of technical operations, HBS will deploy Executive Producer Julien Bertin as a consultant and as the producer of the live race feed and the 52-minute international highlights programme. As well as producing world-class live television coverage of the Men’s Elite Race, HBS has been involved in contributing to essential parts of the preparation for the event – including the compilation of the production plan and workflow, Aerial and Bike Camera assignments during the race as well as guidance in preparing timing and results graphic insertions.
