First up: SPOOKYCX is now November 8th, not November 1st. So your CupDay weekend plans won't be foiled again. Wow, June to November, what a long time between CX races. If only there were more races in Melbourne during winter.
Second up: All pertinent information for DDCX Round #2 can be found here. This page will get updated as things develop / change.
We should remind you that DDCX Round 2 is also Round 2 of the 'big dance' aka the National Cyclocross Series (aka NCXS).
What does this mean? Well apart from being your chance to watch the country's best CX racers rail around the undulating surrounds of Darebin Parklands it also comes with some special conditions.
If you want to race CX A Grade (Mens or Womens) you need to enter -->here<--. Entries for this close midnight 15th June. Yes, that's a week before the race. Don't forget.
If you want to race CX B (Mens or Womens) or CX C Grade (Mens) or Open (Mens or Womens) pre-reg
Support races (B/C/Open/Kids pre-reg
If you are racing A Grade/Elite and purchased a DDCX Season Entry (you know, the $80 one with the sick teeshirt), please let registration know on the day and we will refund you $20 via paypal, or, you can race elites and B/C! It's a bit convoluted but unfortunately that's the way it has to be with two disparate entry systems!
If you have a DDCX Season Licence (The $60 green cardboard thing with the red stamp), you cannot race elites. You can race B/C though. Elites require a full CA Gold or MTBA licence. You can however, use it for the Victorian State CX Championships (but not the elite races), which are on at Cranwell Park Saturday June 21.
For those that weren't present at the event last year, all I can do is share some of the shots!
