  • The Battle of Hoth - Seight Sprint Wars July 19

    Loosely known as ‘The Battle of Hoth’, a special one-off Seight Sports Sprint Wars was run by PACC at the Superdrome on Sunday afternoon. With the addition of quite a few top-notch visitors from interstate and some ‘local’ HPU riders, the field was set to commence the attack/defence of Echo Base, leaving Admiral Ozzel dead on the floor of the Executor and Han Solo struggling to get the Millennium Falcon ready for the evacuation…but I digress…

  • 2019 Super Series - join a PACC team!

    Following on from the success of our Club's five teams in 2018, we are seeking expressions of interest from members to join our club teams for the 2019 Cycling South Australia Super Series. PACC will subsidise teams across all categories - and we hope to be able to fly the (monochrome) colours across a number of grades to cater for new and experienced riders, young and old.

    The series is a lot of fun, and consists of criteriums, a hill climb and a double header on the Copper Coast and is held between September and November.  

    If you are interested, send us an email with your name, age and your preferred category.

    Further information is available on the dedicated Super Series website (note that the Club will submit an EOI for the teams.)

  • 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.
