Le Tour, World Champs, West Head, Paris Roubaix are all races one needs to win. You can achieve one of them with our next DHB West Head Road Race. The last DHB Road Race was raced in memorable conditions, while it may not rain this time, you will have just as many memories if you get on the start line of one of our nine grades via Buncheur.
If you want to look super fresh this Spring time, then make sure you go shopping at Wiggle for our new club kit. You just need to go onto Wiggle and search ‘MWCC’ or simply shop HERE.
In September we had circa 250 riders attend our event and many grades were sold out prior to entries closing, so do not delay in getting your entries in.
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. We would request that you 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.

New to racing?
Racing is relatively simple to do so stop putting it off and just do it. Here are some tips to get you going and you can read a full guide here :
- You need a RACE licence from Cycling Australia. There are short and long-term options available. If in doubt, choose MWCC as your club!
- Enter the race online at Buncheur.com via the link at the top of this page. Make sure you do this by Friday before the race. There are NO on the day entries.
- On the day, you should arrive not more than 10min before your start time, collect your race number (this will be pre allocated and you need to know your number). Stick it on your bike and you’re ready to go.
- Work out how long it will take you to get to the course whether you are driving and/or riding.
- Bring enough food and water for your race distance plus riding to and from the race.
- Check out the course before the race if you haven’t been to West Head. This will make it easier on race day.
- Want to go faster? Get specific and train on the course. Do some efforts on a non-race day and it will help with the intensity of the race.
- Tried your first race and got dropped? You won’t win it first go. Racing takes some getting used to, both strategically and physically. Commit to coming back and you will see yourself improve. One or two goes won’t do it.
If you use gel or energy wrappers, please put your empty wrappers in your pockets and take them home with you. The National Park or our ute/trailer are not rubbish dumps.
