  • 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.

  • Results Focus CXtwiLITE @ Not the Circus

    We were back to the City, with wintery conditions - on part of last year's ripper National Cyclo-Cross Series course. With rain falling and temperatures dropping to 14C by the end of the evening, it was our first taste of mud for quite some time. Quite a few new riders enjoying the conditions and a terrific set-up and pack-down volunteer effort meant we got maximum race times given the gloomy conditions.
