Modelled on hard Belgium racing, this route will have you racing over cobbles, gravel, back alleyways and at times the infamous 'grassy knoll.'
The pace is generally fast on this "race", but is determined by who turns up. Thus far, we've had former Yellow Jersey wearers, British and Australian National Road Champs, Paris-Roubaix Podium Takers, current Pros, former Pros, Director Sportifs, MTB World Champs, and numerous Australian CX National champs
While it started as a road training loop, and has more recently morphed into a CX training ground for Australia's fastest.
But don't be scared...
For the newcomers, or those needing to regroup, please just request to go the "Dutchie", a second group that rolls the short cuts and at a slightly slower pace.
