Is the CX season over? We say neigh!

Put on your finest fascinator and come on down to the Harrison St velodrome this November 3rd for a Spring Carnival-themed version of DDCX.

We'll be celebrating the finest horse racing has to offer from 1pm onwards with a variety of short, hard races that are sure to leave the crowd enthralled. All the racing will be held entirely inside the velodrome - so there's no need to worry about a Phar Lap!

Emphasis will be strongly geared towards having fun, so we're offering discounted entry for those who show up in costume (Jockey? Bookmaker? A literal birdcage? The possibilities are endless).

We'll have our usual handicaps, plus a singlespeed 'stayer's race', a 'Fashions on the Field' costume competition (for humans AND #dogsofddcx) and a couple of extra little gems we think you'll really enjoy. Make sure to bring your foals along, because we'll have kids' racing too!

Drop whatever you're doing and book yourself in for the CX Plate - the REAL race that stops the nation!


  • Proudly presented by DDCX
  • Location: - Harrison St Velodrome, East Brunswick
  • Costumes - Costumes do not have to horsie-themed, but getting dressed up is central to the event's spirit, racing or not! Have a think about your outfit though. Not wearing a costume may lead to some racing 'disadvantages' ;)
  • Races - The nature of this event is multiple short races (10-15mins), some fun races and then the highlight race the inaugural DDCX CX Plate aka the BCCDDCXSSCXCC
  • Getting There: - We highly recommend riding your bike, but if not there is limited parking on the south side of Harrison St
  • Parking: - IMPORTANT - Please respect our LOCAL Residents. There will be no parking on the east side of Harrison St North. Because of ongoing construction there is no parking inside the velodrome grounds.
