Be Amazed – MWCC 2016 Race Calendar

The MWCC racing season is underway, with 2016 already witnessing some great racing at West Head, HART Crit course and our short course mountain bike racing. To allow all riders to plan their season and year accordingly, we have provided a list of all of our planned races for 2016 and yes,the calendar is full of hard racing!

Before listing the events, we first want to thank all of the MWCC volunteers who give up their racing opportunity to host and run these events. Our members will volunteer over 500 hours of race day time to allow our members and riders from all over Sydney to race. This time excludes the hours put in pre event for all of our races, so we just want to thank all of those members who give up their valuable time to allow everyone else to race.

Looking at the calendar of events, nearly all events will be open to all riders and clubs. We realise that running the only regular road race in Sydney makes our events highly valued. With so many events on it would be worth investing in a racing licence from Cycling Australia. Unlike many other local races, we often allow for day licences to be purchased for those that don’t have a racing licence. We can’t guarantee that these will be offered at all events (no day licences will be available for our Wall races) and so riders should consider the investment in a racing licence.

After the success of The Wall, the hardest handicap on the cycling calendar and one of cycling’s monuments, we are very happy to see this return to our calendar on the 9th of October. We will also be running a mini Wall on the 12 June, which will be a shortened version of our epic race.

Our Subaru Cyclocross series will kick off in April, this series which has been running for a number of years now and continues to grow in popularity.

Riders should regular visit our website and or follow us on social media, to ensure that they hear about any dates related to event openings. The mountain bike, cyclocross and HART racing all have entry on the day, however many West Head races require pre entry.

MWCC is the only club in Sydney to offer road, crit, mountain biking and cyclocross racing. This is due to the hardwork of our volunteers and our sponsors. As a result of their support, we are able to offer free kids training at all of our HART Crit races and Mountain Bike Short Course Races. This is open to all children and runs at the same time as the races by a qualified coach.

Races are open to all licensed riders unless otherwise noted.

As an exclusive to MWCC members (one of the benefits of being a club member), they are able to purchase an all season pass to all of our road races at a reduced rate. This is open to MWCC members only and can be purchased via – http://www.trybooking.com/KACX
