See you saturday!

Hopefully we have some great racing weather. 
We've got tons of volunteers and marshalls and are looking forward to a great day of racing! 
We're lucky to have the business park to ourselves on a Saturday. The course is fully closed to traffic, 2/3 or the course its only one lane of the road. Our course is wide, and the start/finish stretch is the whole road on Fleming, which will be right beside the rider parking and registration. See you all then.

Beginner Category Equipment Rules

Lots of questions about this - to participate in the beginners race you need "Road" type bicycle - Drop handlebars and front and back brakes (either caliper or cantilever- no disc brakes). For more information see Equipment Rules in our Tech Guide

What category should I race?

We've been getting lots of questions like "What category should I ride?"

Here is a bit of a breakdown of how we see it...
Beginner - if you have never ridden a criterium before, this is the category for you. Our course is wide with easy corners and its a good place to come learn.

Sport - We see the OCA's categories of M3, S3 and the women riding in this one. That being said, we welcome  the women to choose the category that they like. We'll arrange prizes for each start for both men and women.

Open - Juniors, Seniors 1-2, Masters 1-2 and Elite men.
