  • 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…

  • 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.

  • 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.
