2016 Club Criterium Championships

crit champs 2016

Due to a number of factors that have been out of Geelong Cycling Club’s control, we have had to make a few adjustments to the racing calendar in March, including a change of venue and date for the Club Criterium Championships. The Club Criterium Championships will now be raced on Saturday the 5th of March at Eastern Gardens. All the event details can be found on the event calendar. We sincerely apologies for the late notice. It is something that we do our best to avoid, however there are extenuating circumstances that have lead to this last minute change.

President’s report – November 2015

May I start by offering our heartfelt condolences to Kylie Clarke on the recent death of her Mother and particularly to the boys, Lincoln, Harrison, Fraser and Cooper. How pleasing to see the response to our Summer Racing Program, excellent numbers at both Belmont Island evening criteriums including pleasing fields in A grade at this previously contentious venue where rumors have abounded over its safety. Clearly the Belmont Island track is extremely dangerous for those riders who insist on continuing to pedal on any of the tight corners. After last Tuesday’s race it seems action is necessary before this Friday’s event to impress upon riders their need to take their responsibilities seriously for the safety of the race and their …
