Yep I raced today at about 1230 in C-grade. Great course - much more fun than Regency Park where the crits usually are. The wind on the back straight was tough!

bongo do you race?

No I dont,was thinking of having a crack.My fitness needs improving first,and my bike time is limited for the winter.It looked tough on the back straight,and it wasnt that windy until you were at the track.I was there about the same time you were racing.When is the next one?I heard there are mid week races also?Will have to go for a few laps one night after work and see how i fare.

The next crit at Vic park probably won't be until 'summer' season, which starts in October!

Over the winter season (April - Sept) the vast majority of races are road races around the hills. Summer season (Oct - Mar) is criteriums and track season, and yes, there is plenty of mid week racing.

If you want to get more info on racing and see the race calendar check out http://sa.cycling.org.au

If you're thinking of giving racing a go the best way is to just do it! (don't worry too much about fitness at first, if you can keep up on a reasonably paced group ride then you should be fine).

Hi all,

The Victoria Park criterium course is great and it is good for training there too.
