HAVE YOU EVER CONSIDERED CLUB RACING?

DO YOU NOT SEE THE VALUE OF PURCHASING A RACE LICENCE AND ONLY COMPETING IN 2 OR 3 RACES PER YEAR?

The AWPCC Criterium series is about to start up once again out at the DECA Wodonga Tafe course at Albertson Rd, Barnawartha this Wednesday 10th October, and continue each Wednesday night.

Cycling Australia also have a deal where if you don’t have a racing licence and you sign up after 1st October 2018, you get 15 months for the price of 12 months (licence until 31.12.2019). This is a great way to get good use of your racing licence with a chance to do 9 criteriums on a 2019 licence before 2019 even arrives!!! To register, click here

http://membership.cycling.org.au/ (to become a member of the Albury Wodonga Panthers Cycling Club you would choose Cycling Victoria).

For anyone who has a MTBA racing licence, you cannot race with that but Cycling Australia offer a discount to MTBA licence holders when you sign up for a road racing licence.

Alternatively, a 3 race licence can be purchased online here

For insurance reasons, you cannot race without a licence. Cycling Australia also require any riders in a road race in Victoria to have a non-flashing tail light on.

The DECA Wodonga Tafe course is a closed race circuit 1.5km in length with a hot mix surface.

Sign on is from 5:30pm to 5:55pm. An entry fee of $7 for anyone who wants to race. Please don't bring a $50 note. Something smaller is much easier to give change for.

Between now and Christmas time, some great Border business like Urban Graze and Bakers Delight have come on board to supply the winners of each grade with some vouchers.

B Grade – start at 6:00pm and race for 35 minutes plus 3 laps.
D Grade – start at 6:01pm and race for 20 minutes plus 2 laps.

A Grade – start at approx. 6:45pm and race for 45 minutes plus 3 laps.
C Grade – start at approx. 6:46pm and race for 25 minutes plus 2 laps.

Juniors start at 6:01pm with D Grade.

All grades are mixed male and female

Albury Wodonga Panthers Cycling Club is a friendly welcoming club. Anyone wearing a blue AWPCC shirt or cycling kit on the day would be happy to meet you answer any questions. So come and have some fun and make some new friends.

$1K Crit Series

1K crit series, brought to you by Lester & Sons

Consistency wins
Come for any one of the seven week series.
But this is a series: points accumulated to final winner in each grade. And all who ride for at least 6 weeks are in the draw for the 1K, provided by Lester & Son Funeral Directors. They love contributing to community (just wait for special news about upcoming social events for Paris-Roubaix and the Tour de France ...).

Look at all the other sponsors: each week a different sponsor will provide extra value to the night's racing. They're all worth supporting.

BIG NEWS about START TIMES
The mix of grades will change a little from 14 February. The reason: safety.

Racing from 6:00pm - B grade, and D grade, and juniors.
Racing from 6:30pm - A grade, and C grade.

This will mean passing each other is quicker, and give a longer gap between the two (or three) races finishing. Please pass it on, especially to B GRADE.

Cost?
$5 per week for grades A, B, C, D. Juniors: FREE.
