2014/2015 Summer Crit Season - call for squads

Calling all Cyclists

The battle for outdoor supremacy has begun; the magpies are warming up and the wattles are releasing their yellow poison - this is your call to arms! Summer crit season is here!!

Season 2014/2015 starts Wednesday October 22nd (start times are here) and ANUCC will be running preparation sessions at the Mt. Stromlo crit track each Monday from 13th October; 5:30 for 6pm start. 

Just a reminder that CA licences must be up to date in order to race. You can purchase 3-race licences for $47 from ANUCC - which you can redeem later through your renewal. If you need to renew, check out our Cycling Australia licences page.

Helmets must also meet Australian Standards and have the appropriate sticker inside- they will inspect this throughout the season. 

Your Manager for this season will be the well-seasoned Annette Sloan-Gardner. For those wondering, your allocated grade will be the same as where you finished last season (check here ). If you're new: come and have a chat with Tim or any of the other committee members at the Monday night sessions. 

To join one of the ANUCC crit squads or if you have any questions, please contact the ANU inbox (anucyclingclub@gmail.com).

See you all soon,

September 2012 Newsletter by Danny Chak

Spring (noun)
The season after winter and before summer, in which vegetation begins to appear, occurs from September to November in the southern hemisphere. Symptoms include red eyes, short of breath and a wrecked and tired body after days upon days of fetching tissues for that runny nose.

First thought - Hayfever. Yes true, correct, but these symptoms are also synonymous with another occasion that happens during these gradually warming months of the year. The CCC Summer Cirteriums are fast approaching, with the first race night on Wednesday 22nd October. Get your name in fast to be involved in the ANUCC squads for a fantastic season of racing; email us at anucyclingclub@gmail.com.

The annual Monday Night ANUCC criterium sessions are being held once again this year at the Stromlo Criterium Circuit. For those who are familiar with the crit track, this proves to be a perfect opportunity to hone those cornering and sprinting skills in preparation for the upcoming Summer Criteriums. For those who are new to riding on the Stromlo circuit, the track is accommodating to newer riders as the sweeping turns bring confidence to developing abilities and the safety of a closed-off-to-traffic track enables maximum wattage output without the worry of metal boxes cleaning you up.

These sessions will be held from 5:30pm (for a 6pm start)_ and run until 7:30pm every Monday from 13th October onwards. There is also a group of keen beans who think that riding out to Stromlo from the Northside is a good idea, so if you’re also that way inclined, please let us know, as riding in a group is proven to be 100 times better than riding by yourself.

What you need: FOOD – These sessions are as hard as you want them to be and are generally anaerobic intensive. Muesli bars are good, likewise with bananas and sandwiches. FRONT AND REAR LIGHTS – You will need these for the first few sessions if you’re riding to and from. A TOP ATTITUDE – to fit in of course.
