Rapha Bradbury Kermesse

NORWOOD CC SUPER SERIES 2020 TDU WEEK - SUNDAY / MONDAY / TUESDAY
JUNIOR / WOMENS / MENS GRADED KERMESSE

This is tough Adelaide Hills circuit, one of our favourite classic punchy courses! 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. For spectating note the finish line is up the road from sign on.

This event is part of a three-race series, NCC SS 2020 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 three Junior, three Women's and four Men's grades for the series which are our most competitive events of the year. For details on the other two events see links below:
