After its triumphant debut in 2020, The Gawler Eastlink Kermesse is back for seconds in 2021!
The course proved to be a true test of a riders resilience, living up to its great expectations. The course was truly testing of the legs with its mix of rolling hills and a punchy climb up to the finish line each lap. Across the day of racing, we saw a range of race tactics play out across the course. The wind was mild but the exposed roads with little shade had the mild temps punching above their Celsius as the day went on. The 2021 edition will be held a fortnight earlier than in 2020, so fingers crossed the temperature will stay nice and cool across the days racing. For all the details on the first edition of the gawler kermesse last year, and what to expect this time around – Read our race report of the 2020 edition here!
Super Series Race Director Jake Thomas is positive about the Kermesses return, saying “its only our second time in Gawler with the super series, and we area grateful for the opportunity to race on closed roads thanks to the Gawler Council.” These events wouldn’t be possible without the fantastic support of our council sponsors, so we extend our gratitude to our council partners Town of Gawler Council! Stay tuned for our round partner announcement for this round of the 2021 MetroMaps Super Series!
We are excited to return for another year and see the continued development of the area!
