  • Results - '22 State CX Series Round 1

    The Auscycling CX 2022 State Series kicked off in Port Adelaide CC's home turf, right on the waterfront at Joyce Snadden Reserve, Saturday 14th May 2022.  Thenks to the City of Port Adelaide Enfield for helping secure a last-minute venue change which yielded a course that had every surface type imaginable, from lush turf, a bog patch, pavers, road, and super deep sand and slipper pine needles - and racing right on the banks of the Port River. Port Adelaide CC was supported by the AusCycling crew with the required road closure and barriers giving us a rare road section to race upon. As we'd hoped, the Port dophins did finally make a brief appearance during the Women's Races!

  • Results: Dirt @ Dusk Kings Reserve

    People 'sent it' at a brand new venue in Kings Reserve, Torrensville, with many thanks to the City of West Torrens for use of the park. (Did anyone send it better than Andrew, pictured?) With multiple whoops, sweeping off camber turns and an old slippery dip staircase and soft fall play area (which was used for some soft falling!) about 90 riders pinned on a number for a spin in the park.  The course was set up in good time with a handful of trusty volunteers, and some of those, along with some random riders were lucky enough to win some Cycle Closet vouchers for their trouble.

  • Results - Summer Cross

    We were back racing in the beautiful Peace Park with AusCycling help on the last say of the Santos Festival of Cycling. The Pirate Life bar was ticking along, the Trott Park BBQ was sizzling with many people out enjoying the best weather an Adelaide summer can possibly offer. Thanks to Cervelo for showcasing the latest in their gravel range.

  • Crossfire Cup R3 @ John E Brown Park

    After South Australia's last COVID lockdown forced the postponement of the AusCycling Cyclo-Cross State Championships (pencil in Sunday 10 October for those!) people were eager for some sun and a race with 125 riders entering today's final round of the Crossfire Cup, supported by Focus Bike Australia and Zero Friction Cycling. Although there hadn't been much rain, the long grass was very wet for practice and standing water on areas of the moss created a few sparse patches of slick mud - just enough to catch some riders out (here's looking at you, B-Grade Men first corner!).

  • Crossfire Cup R2 @ Not the Circus

    We were back in town for second round of the 2021 Focus Crossfire Cup, in Park 24/Tampawardli/Ellis Park aka "Not the Circus"in the Adelaide CBD.  Not the Circus has been the scene of biblical (Mud! Hail! Flood! Fire! eg epic 'Cross) weather over the last 10 years but once more this winter were we treated to quite a sunny morning with a light sprinkle of rain that only really fell during the women's race, as customary.

  • Crossfire Cup R1 @ Port Adelaide 2021

    The first round of the 2021 'winter' season returned to Port Adelaide to race adjacent the Port Canal.  In previous years at 'Goonbag park' we've been treated to a slick and slippery course, but with an absence of rain we were treated to a Sunday dusty sand bowl - and three-corner jacks that hadn't softened up yet. The off camber sections were tricky nevertheless as tyres cracked through the hard crust to uncover soft sand and even more three-corner jacks!
