2017/18 SKCC Criterium Season

The St Kilda Cycling Club takes its women’s racing seriously!
So seriously they provide the opportunity for women to race at three different levels (Womens A, Womens B & Womens C Grades) EVERY SUNDAY over summer.

This coming season sees some exciting additions to the race calendar.

A Womens Skills session run by Level 2 Coach Bec Dicello.

Long time supporters of the club Total Rush will continue with their popular Points Series  – and Neometro with their popular Sprint Queen competition.

We’re also excited to announce that KOM Financial Advice has come on board as sponsor of a new 3 race Women’s series. Details of the format will be announced shortly.

And let’s not forget the Shimano SuperCrit.
Back for 2017, bigger and better than ever with a massive day of racing that starts at 7:30am with Women’s B & C Grades and concludes with the KOM Financial Advice Elite Womens and the Shimano Elite Mens Race in the afternoon.
The day doesn’t stop at just the racing, there are food trucks, coffee, wine, beer, kids activities that include face painting and a jumping castle.
