Giant Super Criterium

NORWOOD CC SUPER SERIES 2019
TDU WEEK - SUNDAY / MONDAY / TUESDAY

This is our biggest and fastest crit of the year. With GIANT putting $2500 on the line for the A grade men and NCC matching it with $2500 for Womens A grade, the hitters will be out fighting for the $1000 up for the win. The graded racing is as hard and fast as it gets with class across the grades from all over Australia and a few fly ins from over seas. Great spectating over Victoria Park from the heritage grandstand area, with beats and beverages on offer from our mates aBloc beer. Vic park is 2km form the CBD with car parking off Fullarton Rd or Wakefield Rd make access a pinch. Come down and support club racing, blooding in the next potential champions of the sport.

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:
