What Are The Race Start Times?
Why Is SKCC Criterium Racing So Popular?
Great coffee, brownies, muffins, drinks and other yummy snacks. Club extroverts call the races, sometimes in Spanish for that Euro feel! We provide toilets, there are plenty of seats for spectators and heaps of parking on Boundary Street.
What If I Have Never Raced Before?
First of all read our First Time Guide to Criterium Racing and Your First Race. SKCC offers “E” (ENTRY) grade every Sunday. E Grade is intended for people with little or no race experience. E Grade is supervised by experienced riders who will assist with riding and racing skills. The first 20 minutes is under ‘control’ (not actually racing). So it’s a great opportunity for new riders to gain confidence, race experience and meet some fellow newbies!
