Port Adelaide Cycling Club is once again proud to be assisting with ADF athletes as they head towards the Invictus Games in the Hague in 2020. A training camp for swimming and cycling will be held in Adelaide at the end of the month, and PACC will host time trials and criteriums at Victoria Park on 1 October 2019.
The Invictus Squad will be doing a time trial around Victoria Park early in the morning, and a series of criteriums (men's, women's and handcyclists / recumbents) will be held later in the morning / early afternoon.
Riders on tandems, hand cycles and other para athletes are welcome and encouraged to enter in order to provide a race day experience to athletes and provide a suitable mix of skills and abilities to complement and push Team Australia further in their journey towards the games.
