Round 2 of the CORC Cyclocross Series 2020 will be held in Stromlo. Note that due to the current COVID situation we are limiting entries to local riders only, meaning riders that live in ACT and the surrounding area (Queanbeyan). The course will be very similar to last race, but run in reverse. Unfortunately the mulchy hills are out, but we will add some new features.
Please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help with course setting on Saturday afternoon.
Thanks to our series sponsors, Capital Brewing and the Smart Centre for their support.
We recognise both CA or MTBA licence for the event, the cost of entry is $15. If you don’t hold a licence, please complete a Free 2 Month Membership with MTBA if you are eligible prior to the event. Otherwise Day Licences will be available for $33.
For riders racing in B-Grade or C-Grade any bike is welcome, however for A-Grade Men, and A Grade-Women , in the spirit of cyclocross, a maximum tyre width of 35mm are required.
The Junior race is on the adults course for those kids after a bit more of a challenge before stepping up to C-Grade.
For Kids racing: please register as junior. Ignore the pricing info that says that kids do not need to register - this is pre-covid information that we are working to update.
