Introducing Gravel Kermesse Racing to the GV! The Shepparton Cycling Club is proud to introduce the Wodonga Tafe Deca Graveleur Kermesse Winter Series 2021.

You ask what a (Graveleur Kermesse) is. It is a circuit race on rough Sealed and Partial gravel course. Bring any bike along wheather its BMX, MTB, CX or Road bike. No guarantee you won’t receive a puncture. You take that risk. We will do our best to clear the course from these hazards where possible.

We are asking for Volunteers to register to assist up with preparing course ahead of event. Bring a rake, shovel or Blower. This will assist us in opening course early for practice.

It will be both competitive and casual at the same time on one of the safest closed roads in Victoria.  Initially we will be running junior and senior graded races. We will access this and may have to make some changes to accommodate ability and bike grade numbers. We are limited to 20 riders on the circuit at any 1 time. Come race as many of the proposed races in the series. Proposed calendar attached.

Enter the Wodonga Tafe Deca Training facility through main gates. Follow SCC Arrows on Event signage along roadway. DO NOT Defer from this route. Doing so will pick up Bindi Eyes and may bring them onto racing circuit. Keep watch for facility traffic and cyclists. Park in the Parking Bay near SCC Event trailer.

Use Buncheur App to check-in on arrival. Pre entry is highly recommended as we are limited in the numbers. 

Be aware of racing circuit surface. Make sure you have enough time to ride warm up laps when nominated to make yourself aware of any uneven surfaces or cracks.

Commissure will call you to start line and give briefing. Follow their directions at all times.

We recommend driving on the sealed roadway surface and use the parking area provided to avoid bringing bindi eye onto the circuit.
