MWCC Time Trial with 99 Bikes

It’s time to race against the clock in our second West Head Time Trial for 2021. This one is all about how fast you can go on Sunday 6th June and is packed with fantastic prizes. Enter now via Buncheur and entries close on Thursday 3rd June at 8pm.

Thanks to our NEW event sponsor 99 Bikes who are offering up a $6000 new bike for one lucky person! Each race entry and volunteer shift you do across the five TT events this year will give you one entry into the prize draw.  But that is not all folks, more prizes in description below.

Our West Head course will host 2 distances this month: 1 lap (25km) and 2 laps (45km). MWCC will bring you a total of five TT events this year on the hallowed West Head tarmac. Set a time, beat it, repeat. All riders from any club are welcome. Since you are racing the clock, all levels are suitable. Your bike choice is up to you, so roadie or TT can put you on the start line. Time to set yourself a benchmark.

The Time Trial is open to those with a Race (All Discipline) or Lifestyle Licence from AusCycling. Cycling Australia Race or Ride licences that are still valid are also accepted. Triathlon Australia licences can only be used via Warringah Tri Club entry on their website.

If you choose to race it as a team, all riders must individually enter and then, email us directly with names in your team for us to allocate you a team start. cycling@manlywarringahcc.org.au

The start/finish line and presentation area is located at the Elvina Walking Track Car park on West Head Road. Which for first timers is located about 1.5km along West Head Road on the right hand side. Please do not park in the Elvina Walking Track car park – this not only assists our marshalls when they head up there to set up for the finish, but also assists with our relations with the National Parks. This gives riders more room while waiting to start.

Essential Details:

This event will be conducted in accordance with a Covid safe plan. Competitors will be briefed prior to the event on changes to our usual event to ensure the safety of competitors and volunteers. All competitors, volunteers and spectators must sign into the Service NSW Covid Safe Check-in at the race desk, therefore please bring your mobile phone for quick and easy check-in.

Entry Fee: $30 Adults & $10 Juniors– with a current Race or Lifestyle licence from AusCycling. If you have a Cycling Australia licence and it’s still current then it will be valid. ENTER HERE
