It's time to race

Dates for Albury Wodonga Panthers Cycling Club criterium racing series, at Albertson Rd, Barnawartha North (in Logic Centre):
Wednesday 12 October
Wednesday 26 October
Wednesday 9 November
Wednesday 23 November
Wednesday 7 December (to be confirmed)

With huge thanks to Motorsports Training Australia for being so generous. Since they let us use their wonderful facility for free, let's do everything possible to look after the place and show what it means to be grateful.

This week, 12 October, is the very first time we will use this track for racing. So we can expect to learn about the best way to run things. Please be patient with each other.

Here's the plan:
Gates open after 5:30pm
Juniors (free racing): from 6:00pm
Seniors ($5 per person): racing from 6:00pm
Grades: in week one we'd love to have C grade, B grade, A grade & a women's specific grade. But this depends upon actual numbers.

If you know you are coming, please help by letting us know before (club email awpcclub@gmail.com)

What you need:

  • Licence
  • Rear red light
  • Club standards
    The centre is non-alcohol. We need to clean up well (no garbage, no mess in toilets). And don't forget the Cycling Australia Code of Conduct.
  • Willingness to help (compulsory). Friends & spectators (optional)

Also, club kit:
We're working to the Champion System portal open again to buy club kit. This will stay open for a few weeks - but will be closed to allow delivery pre-Christmas. We'll let you know whet it's ready. If you don't yet have an account, set up up here.

If you want club socks, send a message to Chris Little (0407 410 894), as we bought a boxful previously.

Spring racing, & beyond.

We're very happy to announce that AWPCC will be running a series of criterium races at the DECA driver training centre, 45 Albertson Rd, Barnawartha. That's in the Logic Centre.

Start date: Wednesday 12 October, fortnightly. Times to be announced. Entry of $5.Our plan is to have a number of races: juniors first, then as many races as fit the numbers who register. We aim to have A, B & C grades. It would be great to have women's-specific racing too. For those who are new to racing, we will have experienced riders to guide and inform.
Keep an eye on your inbox, and on the club's media, for final details.
There's also the summer tradition of velodrome riding about to start, too. See below for more track news.
A very brief advance warning: in early December we're planning a relaxed AWPCC Christmas party and club champion presentations. Probably in a park, near a BBQ, with all invited.

Velodrome news Great news - junior track this year is going to be run by Greg Featonby. Feato is a life member of the club for good reason. He has an immense amount of knowledge to pass on, as well as great love for the sport of cycling.
The relevant information: Monday afternoon, from 5:30pm, Pearsall St Lavington, starting Monday 7 November.
Senior training: join the crew training each Tuesday evening, 6:30pm-8:30pm at the velodrome.
Questions about track riding? Email the club.

Cycling Licences
To race with a club, you need to be licensed. The way to join is via this Cycling Australia link. If you join or renew from 1 October, the licence is valid until the end of December 2017.

Working Bee
The velodrome needs some love. We have a working bee planned for Saturday 15 October, from 2pm at the track. Please come with all your skills so we can clean up, check the bikes & other equipment, & make fun of each other. Contact person: Chris Little (0407 410 894)
