Welcome to the Northern Sydney Cycling Club
Latest Club News
While we watch the TDF warriors battle the brutal climbs, let's turn our minds to a course of a different kind - the super-quick Beauie crit circuit. This is Sydney's premier criterium race.
Yes Beauie is back for our monthly schedule of great (and safe) crit racing. Format will be scratch races across four grades A-D. All NSCC club members need to get out there on Sunday to ensure they catch the selector's eye for the next round of Battle of the Bridge, to be held at Beauie on 21 August.
Well Round Two of the Battle of the Bridge - held on Sunday at Smurfland aka West Head - again showed that the mighty NSCC are permanent fixtures on the podium.
This race report adheres to the Honesty in Journalism Code, unlike the MWCC report which has been referred to the Press Council of Australia for entry into the fiction section of the digital Velo Library.
Given the recent controversy regarding Race Reports, you have to wonder why anyone would bother writing one, but anyway. A solid contingent of NSCC riders headed South for the Wagga Cycle Classic with Simon Davies, Angus Calder, Dan Newman and Jack Renshaw representing NSCC in Div 2 and Andy Logan in Division 3.
Yesterday 21 NSCC warriors rode across the bridge to Heffron Park at Maroubra to do our club proud at the first round of the Battle of the Bridge inter-club series.
It was great seeing a big NSCC bunch ride down the Pacific Highway - same coming back after the race - and old timers like Matt Garnon reminisced to us youngsters about the glory days when this used to happen back in the day.
In the three grades there were massive bunches and our three race captains - Mick Cupitt, Matt Garnon and Pete Beaumont - all led from the front with each getting on the podium.
This Saturday 2th June (at 3pm) sees the first round of the "Battle of the Bridge" - a new inter-club race series featuring:
- Northern Sydney CC
- Manly Warringah CC
- Randwick Botany CC
- SuVelo CC
The series will be held over four rounds, with each club taking turns to host an event - each race will be only open to riders from these four clubs with grades A-C and an invitational D grade and a Women's grade starting at 2pm.
We have assembled a hot race team with a great mix of NRS experience and youthful talent, and we know the riders will give their all for NSCC.
