RAPHA Uraidla Kermesse


This is fast paced Adelaide Hills racing on one of our favourite courses, in the town containing one our favourite bakery! Its punchy climbs and fast decent make for aggressive racing. A Kermesse is halfway between a Road Race and a Criterium. It's like a criterium in the hills, short but fast paced, with multiple little climbs to attack on each lap. Thanks to our long time sponsors and partners in this event RAPHA for supplying deluxe prizes and goodies to the event. Spectating on this course is as good as it gets, the finish line area has a great views over the beautiful Piccadilly Valley with a vista across the finish, to the far side of the course, meaning you can see riders multiple times per lap.

This event is part of a three race series, NCC SS 2019 run during the TDU to give local and tourist graded riders an opportunity to race while the big race is in town. We are proud to offer two Womens and four Mens grades for the series which are our most competitive events of the year. For details on the the other two events see links below:
