Road Race Season Pass

After the popularity of the Summer Season Pass we have reintroduced this concept for the Road Race season between April and October. Once again the season pass will see you pre-entered into all events GCC host on the Road Race Calendar and preclude you from having to do race day marshalling duty. The Season Race Pass represents extraordinary value for money – there are 16 races in the calendar, so members will save hundreds of dollars.

Victorian Junior and Masters criterium championships

Victorian Junior and Masters criterium championships Saturday just past saw the first running of the Victorian Junior and  Masters criterium championships, by GCC at Eastern Gardens. There was a lot of hard work done by club members and it showed, with a great day of racing had by all. The weather was kind, with a glorious morning tending windy after lunch, which caused a few issues with some emergency folding of the marquee’s, but didn’t affect the racing. Leigh Clifford, 3rd Masters 1 Grant Blake, 3rd Masters 5 The standard of the event was very high, with several Australian title holders competing. GCC had a pretty good showing, with quite a few of our masters turning up and taking home some medals. […]

Summer series update

With the overhaul of the Summer 2014/15 race calendar and the introduction of the Summer Race Series and Summer Race Pass, the ambition of the club was to provide an alternative to the usual summer crit racing offering. Scratch races, handicaps and the Hell of the Surfcoast coupled with crits – all the while ensuring that no member would be required to marshal during the sunny weather and that Dan Wilson actually has a chance to get out and race. A massive thank you to all who have supported the Series, as we can already report it has been a success. Evening crit racing at ‘Belmont Island’ has seen terrific turn out. Racing the shorter, southern, loop all grades have […]

Track Racing Results – Week 1 (23 October 2014)

Despite a poor showing from the GCC Senior Track riders on what was an almost perfect 30 degree evening, the first track racing session of the year was held at the Geelon West Velodrome (Church St) on Wednesday night. With good junior numbers Pam and Nev decided to run a 3 x Scratch Race event to kick things off for the new season. It was obvious that the youngsters had been putting in a few KMs over the winter period with solid results coming in from Mackeely (promoted to seniors after her 1st round win), Dom and Lincoln. These guys are not only getting faster but they are also getting older ! Watch out seniors. Senior racing was somewhat hamstrung […]
