Saturday, 13th October
This event is open to ALL clubs and licensed riders
One of our favourite courses, in the town containing one of our favourite bakeries! 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.
This is a dress rehearsal for round 1 of the NCC three race super series during the TDU, utilising the same course as the round 1 event. Come get some practise in ready to defend the home turf from the interstate invasion!
