Cyclosportif Swan Valley ride with the Chevron Team A1 (80 km)
BWA and Track Cycling WA have come together to create a fantastic day of cycling for all cycling enthusiasts on Sunday 26 June 2011. BWA and Track Cycling are working together to support cycling in Western Australia.
Location: Midvale Speed Dome – Eddie Baron Drive, Midvale, WA…
Teams assembled in front of the Primary School on Argyle St. Overcast, weather held OK, just a few sprinkles, no wind, cool but not cold. AWESOME morning!
Riders have a neutral start from the Midvale Speed Dome, Eddie Baron Drive, Midland to the ‘official start’ at Herne Hill Primary School, Argyle Street, Herne Hill.
The course is 16kms with riders completing 5 laps of the circuit. Farm roads with little traffic and a few easy 90 deg turns.
About the Track Cycling Grand Prix: The Perth Winter Track Cycling Grand Prix has been granted UCI category 3 status in 2011 which is very exciting for cycling in Western Australia. This years event will feature the historic “BWA Westral Wheelrace” along with 8 x UCI finals featuring Australia’s London Olympic hopefuls Anna Meares, Scott Sunderland, Kaarle McCullock and Shane Perkins.
Also, Track Cycling WA have organized the only Cycling Trade Show in Western Australia, with vendors given a unique opportunity to display their wares in an exciting Exhibition environment. The aim is to create an exciting and interactive event for both patrons and exhibitors. I found some very good sales ranging from bikes to nutrition . (more info in http://www.bwa.org.au/events/471/)
