  • 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.

  • CXtwiLITE Results February 2020

    After a long cyclo-cross hiatus we had a 'cross event uninterrupted by extreme weather or apocalyptic bushfire smoke, and we returned to the ever-changing John E Brown Park in North Adelaide.  What was a mudfest for us in September was a delightfully changing dusty short course with myriad different corner grips and geometry that took advantage of some of the park's mulchy, grassy and dusty features.  There were some spectacular starts and finishes across all grades with over 100 riders enjoying mild but sunny conditions.

  • Club Trailer

    The Committee is seeking assistance from members who have a car with a tow bar and a bit of free time to transport the the club trailer to and from our events.

    The trailer will be housed at the Adelaide Super-Drome at Gepps Cross and we need it to be collected and returned before and after races.  Pick up and drop off are flexible (as long as you have a secure place for it to be stored until it is returned).  With 12 CX events a year, we hope to be able to get multiple volunteers and share the load over the CX winter and summer seasons.

    Please email [email protected] if you are interested in assisting.

    Alternatively, if any members have large or access to cheap storage facilities in the city or city fringe, please contact the Committee.

  • The Dark Cross

    It was The Dark Cross supported by Focus Bikes. It was Dark. There was Cross. In a first for cyclo-cross in SA we raced on the grounds of the Adelaide Superdrome using the carparking and Superdrome flood lights. The course was tight, dusty and dry, and slowly degenerated into some sand berms as the night went on. Located on the side of a hill and 1.65km long it included a set of stairs, a paved ramp, barriers and a gravel patch. About half the riders chose to use a headlight, but it was quite possible to race without.
