|We are pleased to announce the dates for our 2016 Winter Track Series to be held at the Adelaide SuperDrome.
Running over six events from April to September the Winter Track Series includes Sprint and Endurance races that will appeal to riders of all disciplines. The series is highlighted by the Helen Baird Memorial Junior Track Competition which has become the premier series for junior riders in SA. As always the Perce Beare Memorial Wheelbase and the legendary 300 Lap Derby are the highlight races on our track calendar.
To add some extra interest to the Winter Track Series we have a number of new initiatives that will appeal to riders and generate some "friendly competition" between riders and clubs:
- Kilkenny Cycling Club members will earn points in all races that will count toward the KCC Eddie Smith Track Championship
- Riders from all clubs will earn points in races throughout the series that will count toward a new intraclub competition hosted by KCC. The competition will be named in honour of Graeme Zucker a Life Member of KCC, Centrals and CSA, who works tirelessly for all clubs with his duties as Commissaire and Commentator at all events around SA.
