National Capital Tour

Postby Cape_Horn » Thu Sep 04, 2014 10:57 pm

So as part of the NRS series, There is an event in Canberra.
Last year, I went and was intrigued by the Cirterium Circuit used.
I had two main thoughts - I would love to race that course, and I wish that it wasn't JUST the NRS riders who got to race that circuit.
A few weeks ago, I was contacted by the organisers of the National Capital Tour and asked if I could run a B/C Grade race for both Women and Men

Why should the NRS riders get all the fun?

This year, the NCT would like to invite riders not racing in the NRS to race around Federation Mall. This is a once a year event, with racing in the centre of the parliamentary triangle a rare and special event.
This race is open to all B and C grade CA members who have a Gold racing licence.
The course is clockwise around Federation Mall, as can be seen here. ... te-Map.png
Each Lap is around 1km, with 15m of climbing.

We will be running two races on Sunday, September the 21st,
A Womens race, starting at 12:15pm
and a Men's race starting at 12:50pm
Each race will be 30mins plus 2 Laps, and will be run under normal CA criterium rules.

Cost is $20

Prizes [Season entry to the summer criterium series(either CCC Wednesdays or Vikings Thursdays, + a large tub of Aussie Butt Cream)
