Cyclocross riders will be tearing around Terrey Hills this Saturday and with the long range weather forecast looking glum, this becomes perfect cyclocross weather!
Racing will be held at JJ Melbourne Hills Memorial Reserve, Kamber Road, Terrey Hills. Racing will be on regardless of the weather. That is what makes cyclo cross so great.
We will be holding three races on the day that will cater for all standards and abilities. The first race will be Open\any Bike Cyclocross and Womens Cyclocross. You may race your CX, MTB, BMX in this category. This is a great introduction to the sport and would be suitable for all levels.
The second race will be the kids race on a modified course. This is open to children under 12 and is free to all entrants.
The third race will be Prestige Cyclocross. You must have a Cyclocross bike to compete in this category. This is considered our top level race and is suitable for those with a cyclocross bike and of reasonable fitness.
Race entry will be $10, and a cycling license is required to race. Either a Cycling Australia GOLD Membership or BMX Australia OPEN Membership or MTBA Australia Competition Membership.
Day licenses will also be available on the day for an additional cost. The course for the day will be designed by our very own Rob Parbery, and will be a testing for riders of all ability! there will be some dirt sections, barriers to be jumped, sections that may require some running as well as some fast flowing sections.
Rob will be designing the course for the two NSW rounds of the 2013 National Series after doing such a stellar job in 2012.
