Racing update from our athletes

Starting with our Super Series riders who were racing The Copper Coast Cup more commonly known as ‘Hell of the North’, a two stage race over the weekend. It began with a road race on Saturday, a grueling 76km for the men and 49km for the women road race around Wallaroo, incorporating around 20kms of gravel. The weekend concluded with a tight technical crit circuit around Moonta.

For the road race on Saturday we were blessed with light winds and blue skys. Most of the groups were reduced with punctures and other mechanicals out on the course.
We’re still waiting for official results and which will be posted in due course, below is what we do know.
