Latest Club News
Happy new year to all Beauie devotees.
Due to late receipt of our race approvals, there will be no Beauie in January. Check this website and facebook for details to be posted on the first Beauie race date for February.
Folks here is a Christmas message on behalf of the club committee - all members will receive this via a Red and Black email too.
On behalf of the NSCC Committee we want to wish all our members a very happy and safe Xmas and New Year.
In recent weeks the cycling community has been saddened by serious injury and loss of life in cycling tragedies, and it's a reminder to us all that we need to be conscious of safety in this wonderful sport of ours.
NSCC former Academy junior, club member and NRS racer (now with USA pro conti team) Harrison Bailey had the incredible experience of riding for several hours 1:1 with Chris Froome.
Here is his story - in his own words - courtesy of Ride Media.
There's also a YouTube link below:
The presence of Chris Froome brought to L’Etape what no one else could, a simple “hello” to anyone who acknowledged him along the road. Even something as small as being passed by Froome evoked beaming grins from fellow participants.
On this the first Sunday of summer, the atmosphere at Beauie was festive as the riders lined up for the final Beauie of 2016.
The Commissaire Phil Youdale decided to shake up everyone - especially those sally sit-ons who were planning to bludge then hit the bunch sprint - by announcing a four grade handicap.
The anticipation was palpable as everyone knew that a handicap at Beauie equals 45 minutes of sheer pain. And so it turned out.
A top quality field (in all grades), perfect weather, and fast crit racing were the perfect combination to honour the life of NSCC legend Rob Hodgson. The 4th Robert Hodgson Memorial Race was a fitting tribute to Rob with the cream of Sydney and the Central Coast's bike racers competing for the ultimate prize.
With awesome prizemoney and prizes on offer - courtesy of our generous sponsors, MOITS, Thornleigh Autobody and Cyclery Northside - the intensity of racing was even higher.
