Lots of stuff to reveal/discuss/update!
First of all we have had a date change. Our dashing chief commissaire NDF has been called into higher duty so we have had to move the first round ONE WEEK earlier.
It is now on Sunday, June 19th at Darebin Parklands.
We would also like to announce the Dirty Deeds Prologue! FRIDAY 3RD JUNE at a location to be announced shortly.
It will be a grass crit/flat track style race, with a couple of 'twists'. Match yourself against the clock and your mates on your 'cross bike or MTB under lights. It will be an excellent warmup and bike check a couple of weeks before the series kicks off.
Entry will be $5 and you will need a CA licence.
And in a massive piece of news CycleSport Victoria (the state governing body for cycle racing) has announced a Cyclocross Open. September 11 at Darebin Internation Sports Centre (aka DISC). You will definitely need a CA licence for this and we at DirtyDeeds HQ thoroughly encourage participation in this. It is a precursor to much larger cyclocross events both in the state and across the country. It is understanding that this race will be the debut of the official CSV Cyclocross rules (adapted from the UCI rules). Again this a big step as to our knowledge Cycling Australia does not have a proper set of rules for Cyclocross racing and this represents a chance to test a potential draft of them.
So to recap the above...
* Dirty Deeds Race #1 - now one week earlier - Sunday 19th June @ Darebin Parklands
* Dirty Deeds Prologue - Friday night, 3rd June, Location TBA, cost $5 (licence required)
* Cycle Sport Victoria Cyclocross Open - September 11th. More details when they appear
Ladies and Gentlemen - let's get muddy!
