aBloc Criterium


The graded racing is as hard and fast as it gets with class across the grades, with riders 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 sponsors aBloc beer.
