The start list for this Sundays West Head Roubaix Elite race is listed below. All participants should have been emailed a race briefing and other grades will be published on the day.

If you missed out, you can now enter our May race on May 8 – via www.trybooking.com/EQVY All riders are reminded that they must sign on 10 minutes prior to the race start.
This race happens because of the hours of work put in by MWCC volunteers leading up to the race and club members who give up their morning of racing to hold a sign or drive a car to convoy vehicles on course. Thank you to all of these volunteers who give up their morning to let the magic happen.
Riders are also reminded that as per the recent UCI ruling, there can be no disc brakes within the peloton. All riders must have a current Cycling Australia licence or a purchased day licence and an Australian Standards helmet.
Sign on is from 7am at the Elvina Walking Track Carpark.
Elite Race Preview
With Pete Livingstone of Mobius not on the startline this month due to overseas travel commitments and current NSW Road Champion Jake Kauffmann both missing from the start list, it may open the gate for a new winner, or perhaps an escapee with the inform Marcus Culey of Swiss Wellness.
JML Racing are working on, he who has the most entrants wins and so if they aren’t in the breakaway, given the numbers there will be pressure on them to pull back any escapees or at a minimum heavily contribute to the workload.
Phoenix Racing are making the trip up from Canberra, so will be keen to show that they aren’t just making up the numbers. Park Bikes are also making a bit of a debut this month, never before bringing strength in numbers and so it will be interesting how they handle the terrain.
There are a few lone gunman including Bill Bolton, GPM and CX racer Garry Millburn of Trek Champion System and so they will be weighing up their tactics. With so many teams a few riders may have to realise that everyone doesn’t race or ride to their tactics and so they may have to try a few different options or perhaps talk to their own teammates first.
It promises to be an interesting race with riders looking to find answers after Blayney to Bathurst or legs before Grafton to Inverell.
