Brand new for 2015 is our monthly 20k Time Trial series starting on Thursday 21 May with the first rider off at 6.30pm. Time Trials are a great way to improve your overall cycling fitness in an individual race against the clock. Riders will be set off at 1 minute intervals and will ride a 20k out and back course and with a monthly series you will be able to measure your fitness and speed improvements throughout the summer. This is a real crossover sport as it is perfect training for Triathletes who can pit their skills against pure cyclists. The aim of this series is to attract riders from all walks of like and all fitness levels, we want to be as inclusive as possible so please do not be intimidated if you are not familiar with this style of riding. Drafting is not permitted so it really is a solo effort against the clock so no need to worry about how other riders are performing.
Our course uses the 2 dead turns on Fraser Road and Centennial Road just outside Hampton with the start line being on the Fraser Road end. Here is a link to the exact course we will be using.

Very happy to announce a new sponsor for the Airport race. Brett Chevrolet will be bringing a few vehicles out to the airport on Saturday.
Its always exciting to take delivery of our race medals, a nervous expectancy, will they look and feel good and will our athletes like them – well that remains to be seen, starting next weekend at the Airport race, but we like them and if we were racing we’d be impressed with these medals. Heres a sneak preview and we look forward to seeing everyone over the course of the summer.
