Description


Shepparton Cycling Club is proud to be hosting the inaugural Fruits of the Valley Cyclo-Cross.

Cyclo-Cross, or commonly also known as CX is a mix of a road riding and cross-country mountain biking generally held over winter and autumn period which makes for some muddy, but fun racing.

Held over a short course, racers typically ride laps of the course which includes mixed terrain as well as obstacles that riders have to avoid, or commonly dismount to get over.

Common terrain may include pavement, steep hills, grass, steps and gravel.

Because of the mixed terrain, CX can make for excellent training intensity as well as a great way to improve bike handling skills. If you've not entered a cyclocross event before, C Grade/Open may be for you - any bike is welcome, though we recommend a MTB, cyclocross or gravel bike. Are you interested in giving CX ago?

 

For B Grade, any bike is welcome, however MTBs or flat bar bikes will be started in a separate wave and will not be eligible for overall series points. CX or Gravel bikes are recommended, with 35mm tyres preferred in the spirit of CX, but wider tyres will be accepted.


For A Grade, all bikes must be CX bikes (drop bars) with a 35mm maximum for tyres strictly enforced.

For all events, a 'race day license' is required, and will be accepted from AusCycling, or current Cycling Australia (CA) or Mountain Bike Australia (MTBA) licenses. 

Day licenses or trial licenses are available also:
