CORC CX Round 5 Update – Schedule Update

Morto

After a short break we are back racing cyclocross in Canberra on 2nd July.  During the break, it was great to see a good crew from Canberra making their way down to Victoria for #alpinecross.  Lets just say Morto surprised more than a few riders with his 5th place in Elite Men at Mt Beauty.  The following weekend Claire Aubrey and Aaron Thomson were again on the road, this time to Newcastle to successful defend the positions as leaders of the NSW State Series in extremely demanding conditions.

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 from 10:20 sharp.   This will be a great opportunity to ride a lap of the course, practice the more challenging sections and get a few tips.

For riders racing in B-Grade or C-Grade and A-Grade Women any bike is welcome, however for A-Grade Men , in the spirit of CX, the maximum tyre width will now be 35mm.
