Port Adelaide Cycling Club is proud to announce it is now one of three South Australian Cycling Clubs to be awarded 'StarClub' accreditation from the South Australian Office of Recreation, Sport and Racing.
Several PACCers along with the SA team travelled to Brisbane, QLD over 12-15 March to race the National Masters Track Championships at the Anna Meares 'Annadome' Velodrome.
Due to the growing COVID-19 crisis worldwide, and acting upon advice from State and Federal Governments, and our State and National Sporting Organisations Cycling SA, Cycling Australia and Mountain Bike Australia, the Port Adelaide Cycling Club is cancelling all upcoming races and coached training sessions for the immediate future, pending further advice.
Sports Vouchers is a State Government initiative administered by the Office for Recreation and Sport and Racing (ORSR). The program is an opportunity for primary school children to receive a $100 discount on sports club/membership fees. This is double what was previously on offer. The purpose is to increase the numbers of children playing organised sport and to reduce the costs for parents.
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.
U23 PACCers who have been selected to the State or National team, or have been racing at the national level regularly may be eligible for our Junior Racing Scholarships. The cash scholarships are intended to be used to support of travel, accommodation and kit purchases. The eligibility period is the club financial year - between 1 April 2019- 31 March 2020 and recipients are announced at the club's AGM.
