Spectator Guides: How to watch this year's Super Series Rounds!
Round 1: Mischief Brew Points Race
This one is new to us, a track-style Points Race with intermediate sprints every 4 laps of the Vic Park short course, and double points at the end! Make sure you come down with an empty stomach, as there's plenty to eat and drink at Kiosk on 16, The Velo Precinct, and GANG GANG CO who are coming down especially for us!
Round 2: Altitude Cycling & Fitness Team Time Trial
A favourite from last year, the Team Time Trial returns to Lenswood this year. Teams will tackled on out-and-back-style undulating course, before heading straight up Stentiford Rd, one of Adelaide's nastiest climbs that regularly features in the infamous Dirty Dozen ride. Bring a cowbell and set yourself up on Stentiford Rd to watch the State's best cyclist tear themselves (and each other) inside out on this 16% grade!
Round 3&4: Copper Coast Cup
Comprising the Wallaroo Road Race and Moonta Criterium, the Copper Coast Cup (or the Race Formerly Known As Hell Of The North!) has long been a fixture on the South Australian racing calendar. Made possible by the Copper Coast Council, this race weekend typically delivers unpredictable finishes in Saturday's road race and fast-paced, tight criterium racing on Sunday.
CLASSIC HITS 5CS WALLAROO ROAD RACE
Now famous on the local racing circuit, the Wallaroo Road Race is atypical for a road race in that it comprises a significant amount of off-road gravel under the wheels. With that in mind, mechanicals or errors in judgement often dictate the outcome of this one - you never know who's going to come around the last corner next and come across the line for the win!
MAGIC FM MOONTA CRITERIUM
A tight and technical circuit in a regional town, the Moonta Criterium has to be raced to be fully understood. The local community gets behind the event with a carnival-like atmosphere – this is a race you’ve got to come out to at least once in your life, especially if you live around the region!
Keep up with all things Super Series!
It’s a problem every race organiser wishes they had – too many entries! This year we have been overwhelmed with not just team entries into the Masters Cat 2 grade for the Super Series, but individuals who want to get in on the action, especially for the upcoming closed road street circuits that only come …
The back half of the 2019 Super Series is nice and tidy – 4 criteriums in 5 weeks, including two at all-new street circuits – so CSA has taken the opportunity to deliver our most comprehensive Junior Super Series yet! U9 and U11 riders will race in their age categories (remember, as of October 1 …

The Altitude Cycling and Fitness Round Two Team Time Trial course is one of the hardest in the country. Aptly sponsored, with riders gaining 414m of altitude in just over 16km the non-traditional course presents a variety of tactical dilemmas as teams chase both the stage win and overall classifications. The bigger teams would need …
One of the newest bike shops in town, Altitude Cycling and Fitness, have immediately involved themselves in the local racing scene and excitedly come on board as a sponsor of the 2019 Cycling SA Super Series. With the only hill in the 2019 series featured in Round 2’s TTT – it made sense for them …
