Cyclocross 2020 Events

The provisional calendar for cyclocross club racing in 2020 is set. The format of racing will be similar to previous years.

We will also be trialling some short, informal crit races this summer before the season kicks off in earnest. More details will come later.

Provisional Event dates for 2020 are:

Saturday, February 08, 2020: CX Crit – Sat night at Stromlo

Saturday, March 07, 2020: CX Crit – Sat night at Stromlo

Sunday, March 29, 2020: CORC CX – Wanniassa

Sunday, May 03, 2020     CORC CX – Richardson

Sunday, May 24, 2020     NSW/ACT CX Event (Not Champs) – Narrabundah

Sunday, June 14, 2020    CORC CX – Stromlo (Option a) or

Sunday, June 21, 2020    CORC CX – Stromlo (Option b)

Dates & Venues are subject to change.

We recognise both CA or MTBA licence for the event which is great as CX is somewhere in between road and mountain bike racing.  If you don’t hold a licence, please complete a Free 2 Month Membership with MTBA if you are eligible prior to the event. Otherwise Day Licences will be available for $25.

To continue to encourage women’s participation in cyclocross, experienced local cyclocross rider Claire Aubrey will be hosting a pre-ride open to all registered women prior to most events.   This will be a great opportunity to ride a lap of the course, practice the more challenging sections and get a few tips.
