Unfortunately with the days getting shorter, and the velodrome lights being out of action (they work but we just can't turn them on!) we've had to suspend both the Tuesday and Thursday sessions at Hanson Reserve until the lights are repaired by the City of Port Adelaide Enfield. We just don't have enough light to a safe session (and daylight savings ends this weekend).
The AusCycling National Esports Series is running again for 2022 and everyone is welcome to join the PACC team for the event. There are no limits to the number of riders for a club in all grades. So the more riders, the more points that we can score for the club!
People 'sent it' at a brand new venue in Kings Reserve, Torrensville, with many thanks to the City of West Torrens for use of the park. (Did anyone send it better than Andrew, pictured?) With multiple whoops, sweeping off camber turns and an old slippery dip staircase and soft fall play area (which was used for some soft falling!) about 90 riders pinned on a number for a spin in the park. The course was set up in good time with a handful of trusty volunteers, and some of those, along with some random riders were lucky enough to win some Cycle Closet vouchers for their trouble.
We were back racing in the beautiful Peace Park with AusCycling help on the last say of the Santos Festival of Cycling. The Pirate Life bar was ticking along, the Trott Park BBQ was sizzling with many people out enjoying the best weather an Adelaide summer can possibly offer. Thanks to Cervelo for showcasing the latest in their gravel range.
After the club's success in Series 1, PACC invites members who use Zwift to join our team for Series 2 of the AusCycling Club National E-Sport Series!
After being forced to miss a round of Seight Sprint Wars a few weeks ago due to Miss Rona, it was fantastic to be back on the boards at the Adelaide Superdrome on Monday night. With many SASI & PPA athletes doing a pre-race flying 200m qualifying, there was only a few other riders needing to do a qualifying ride once racing commenced (including a PB effort from tandem pair, PACC’s Madelene McNeil and Caitlin Ward). So it was quickly straight into the Match Sprint rounds.
