It will be a race that is suitable for people who have never raced before and want to find out what criterium racing is all about. Entry to the race is free, however, you’ll need a 3 Race Membership which you must organise online prior to attending this event.

The race will start at 12:00 PM at the VU in Hoppers Crossing. Gate 5 Hoppers Lane, Hoppers Crossing. Rock up earlier (11:30 AM) to register and have a chat with many of the FCC members who are more than willing to answer any questions you may have about racing. 

You’ll need the following at a minimum:

  1. A road bike
  2. Australian Standards Helmet
  3. A 3 Race Membership from Cycling Australia, which you can get online here https://eventdesq.sportstg.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=main&EventDesqID=14967&OrgID=4912
