  • 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!

  • South Australia CX Championships - Day 1

    Day one of the split-round SA State CX Champs was held on the 16th August in 'Not the Circus' in the western Adelaide Park Lands.  With state gongs for J19, U23, Elite and all Masters Categories on offer (including the 'baby masters' age category, 'Expert') the field was stacked across many age groups creating some big fields in wave-starts, despite a number of juniors away racing their State ITT champs up at Mypolonga.

    Port Adelaide CC held its second cyclo-cross race for Winter 2020 and with the Covid-19 restrictions easing, the small but enthusiastic crowd, heckles, and the Trott Park BBQ were back and in force at the Adelaide Superdrome and Forester's Forest Grounds.

  • Return to PACC events!

    We are aiming to return to more 'normal' club activities in the week starting 1st June 2020, as permitted by law.  While this means we can start to recommence some of our activities, we are still limited in what we can offer. Our interpretation of the Emergency Declaration is we generally offer a non-contact sport (where any contact between participants that does occur, is accidental) and we can make changes to our activities to try to keep riders, coaches, officials and volunteers Covid-safe.
