FOCUS OZZYCROSS - 26 Jan 2014

Results: You'll find the full results here! 

FOCUS CXtwiLITE  Summer 2013/14
 

 


RESULTS - RACE 1!

RESULTS - RACE 2!

The 'lite' version of cyclo-cross returns to Adelaide this summer! 50% of the course, 100% of the fun! Shorter courses and faster racing after work will have everyone grinning like maniacs this summer. Perfect for starting out in cyclo-cross, you can race any bike, including a road bike in the dry conditions.  No special equipment required, but if you're riding home remember to bring some lights!

Note a current Cycling Australia race license (or MTBA, or BMXA equivalent) is required to ride in these events, primarily for insurance purposes. Bring your license card with you to sign-on! If you don't have a 'GOLD' CA membership you can buy one online here which will cover you till 31/12/2014 (and enable you to race road, track, sportifs and time trials too) but if this is your first try at racing you can buy a PACC three-race permit ($44 for adults) to cover you (and us) for three races as an introduction to racing - then if you join up in full you get those $$ off the full price of a GOLD membership. Your other option is to get a $132 PACC MTB membership - but note these cannot be used for road/track/TT/sportif events. 3-ride Permits can be purchased at the event but email cx@pacc.org.au in advance so we bring enough permits. Yes you can enter on-the-day for $20, or enter the entire series for $45.

State Cyclocross Championships Chateau Tanunda 2013

 

Posted Posted on 22 September 2013 by Webmaster  | 

Full results now available from the inaugural South Australian State CycloCross Championships . Great day across all championship events - from J11 through to Masters 6 including the Elite Titles - culminating with an all-in CX 2LapHandicapped Dash4Cash - and extra $100 cash was tipped in by Focus Bikes Australia while the riders were on the start line in for either the first non-winning man or woman! Thanks to Chateau Tanunda is for supporting the event, we hope to race again there next year.   Special big thanks to all who came to the Barossa a day early to assist setting up the course and enjoyed a night out in Angaston afterwards - it simply would not have been possible without all your help.

                    Port Adelaide CC is proud to host the opening round of the 2013 National Cyclo-Cross Series and FOCUS BIKES support events which gets under way in Adelaide on the June long weekend.  A host of Australia's best road and mountain bike riders have already confirmed for the second running of the exciting Series.

                    2012 Series winners Adrian Jackson and Lisa Jacobs are confirmed starters for the Series, along with reigning cross country national champion Peta Mullens and former national mountain bike champions Andrew Blair, Chris Jongewaard and Rowena Fry.

                    ?It (2012) was fantastic and I am certain it is only going to get bigger and better,? Jackson remarked.

                    In a major coup, Australian road cycling legend Robbie McEwen has entered the Port Adelaide CC rounds of the Series, although the three-time Tour de France points jersey winner admitted he was attempting a low-key entry.

                    "Busted - did stealth entry for the rAdelaide round of #ncxs National Series CycloCross June 8 & 9 for fun, but must train now. #wordisout," McEwen joked on Twitter earlier this week.

                    Cyclo-cross, or CX as it's known, has a long history in the mud fields of Europe and has also seen spectacular growth across the world in the past few years, including Australia.

                    It provides an exciting alternative to road and mountain bike races because of the shorter courses and races, with riders also forced to tackle various terrains including pavement, grass, mud and sand, all while negotiating obstacles such as rocks, steps and logs.  The thrills, spills and mud provide great entertainment for competitors and spectators alike.

So if you don't think you can race, but want to be involved at the bleeding edge in our CX series, please put your name forward to us and join the PACC volunteering crew!
