Summer Racing 2017/2018 

Tuesday Night Criterium’s at Eastgate Industrial Park.

From 3rd October 2017

Racing starts at 6.15pm sign on and warm up from 6pm

Our circuit is an approx 700m loop. Two grades are riding on the circuit at the same time with the faster grade starting off first. This enables riders to finish racing around 7pm and bike back into town before dark.

A Grade  15mins + 5 laps.

B Grade  15mins + 3 laps.

C Grade 10mins + 5 laps

D Grade 10mins +3 laps.

The first 2 weeks with be grading nights then points will start. If you’d like to come along for the first time you are most welcome. Come early at just before 6pm and we will arrange an experienced rider to give you some tips on cornering and riding in the bunch. It’s a lot of fun on a smooth road with no hills. We definitely need some more D Grade novice riders to make up a competitive Grade.

Bryce Road Racing from Thursday 5th October 6.15pm

The start line is approx 5km up Bryce Rd just south of the one lane bridge. Procedure is you roll up, put your name on the board, get given a transponder number and you’re ready to race/ride. This year we will be having a non competitive group going off first. This is for riders who do not wish to race, recovering from injury or may be new to road riding. Please tell your friends & fellow riders.Races are between 18km & 26km long which allows racing to finish by about 7pm followed by a 30min ride back to town.

We have a program for the season with Handicap Races, Graded Scratch Races and Time trials here for Roster details, new this season Handicap & Scratches races will be earning points as below.
