HCC Winter Track Racing - The Sunday Roast (2 - 5 pm)

Hosted by the Hawthorn Cycling Club at the Darebin International Sports Centre (DISC) in Thornbury. Previous years' reports & results can be located here.

All licensed riders with some track racing experience are welcome. Note that Junior riders are welcome but they must be experienced and have permission from their club/coach to participate.

The Sunday Roast On Wheels is offered as endurance track training for experienced track riders to practice racing over Championship distances. Riders are split into two divisions and depending on numbers, up to three races are offered: scratch (30 to 40 laps), elimination and points (80 to 120 laps). Riders are permitted to be lapped and can remain in the race until the finish. The main objective is to provide an opportunity to test your abilities under race conditions. In order to minimize costs and given the maximum number of riders is 24 per race, the race fee ($10 for up to 3 races) is set to only cover the facility hire and hence no prize money will be offered.

Extra information and all calendar dates can be found here.
