Proudly presented by Hamilton Wheelers Cycling Club in conjunction with Queensland Cyclocross
It's great to see cyclocross growing with a number of new clubs hosting racing this season. The Nundah CX is being hosted by Hamilton Wheelers.
The course will be fun and challenging, using parts of the crit circuit and includes some fast-flowy singletrack sections of buch next to the cemetery.
We will be including a "Little Crossers" event for the kids (16 inch, balance bikes etc)
Note that Womens B,C and Open (First-timers) grades will be run as completely separate races so there will be no argy bargy push and shove (unless you want it!)
Cyclocross is an exciting, challenging, whole of family activity.
There are other CX races coming to SEQ in the coming months so this could be the start of something new and exciting for you and your whole family to enjoy.
With the recent rains, it's going to be wet, so get ready to get dirty! We guarantee this will be FUN... Hugely FUN!!! And you've never done this before, YOU REALLY DO HAVE TO GIVE THIS A TRY!!
