With the winter chills coming into Sydney in a big way, it is a wise decision by MWCC and our compatriots of MWMTB to stage the next round of the HED Cyclocross and mountain bike short course so that we can get that European feel for the cross races.
Once again JJ Melbourne Hills Memorial Reserve at Terrey Hills will become a little part of Belgium, therefore almost doubling the country’s land size. The course is located next to the equestrian centre and behind the Rural Fire Brigade Station, there is plenty of parking and facilities to use.
Have you ever dreamed of being the next Zdenek Stybar? Well now is your chance to test your cycling skills combined with your running and jumping skills – in the growing sport of cyclocross. Along with the HED Cyclocross series, that runs one race for all types of bikes on the cyclocross cross and a separate race for cyclocross specific bikes, the day also has a short course mountain bike series – which is 100% effort around the multiple loop course.
Check out the some photos by Gilbert Romane from last months race and also some action video – http://vimeo.com/39589540
As always it is great value racing at only $10 race entry for those with a current 2012 CA licence, with day licences available for those that don’t.
