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!
The Junior Super Series was a new addition to the programming in 2018, designed to get kids who were keen on racing more crits a few extra races on the calendar. Fast forward to 2019, and some of the first year teething problems have been ironed out (we’re still getting there, but it’s better) with …
It looked like the Josiah Whittaker (Rocket Team Racing) show early on in this year’s Super Series Cat 2 Men’s grade, eager not to have a repeat of last year’s nail-biting finish to the Series GC where he won on a countback over Norwood CC’s Andrew Clarkson – the two had even finished first and …
With only two teams from 2018 returning to the 2019 Super Series Women’s Cat 2 grade, it seemed like it would be anyone’s game. A splintered ADX Depot team did not return to defend their 2018 team title, but 2018’s Series Winner Michelle Bailey (formerly ADX Depot) found a new home at the head of …
Master’s one has been owned by Tim Decker for the past two seasons. This year, a new rivalry would emerge between two riders riding their first master’s team series. Chesser Chemicals jumped into the fray, with a team full of experienced riders, who all were capable of holding their own. After a two-year hiatus, we …
A monster field took to the 2019 Super Series in Masters Cat 2, with 11 teams taking part across 8 rounds. By the end of the Series, with a handful of guest riders across the teams, the numbering topped out at 99 race numbers allocated; the most any Super Series grade has ever, or will …
