RD I: HOYTS AUSTRALIA CRITERIUM @ PAKAPAKANTHI - SEP 11
Round 1 of the 2021 MetroMap Super Series is kicking things off at Pakapakanthi on the Victoria Park Crit Course. The honorary home of road racing in South Australia (or at least crits!) it is a course that’s burned into the memory, but one on which timing the run for the line will always prove a fickle finish to finesse. While last year’s round one was the Pakapakanthi Points Race, for 2021 we are keeping things simple and starting off with a criterium to get the series underway. With more grades than ever before, round one will be an action-packed day of racing from start to finish!
We've paired with the new players on-site - Victoria Park Social Club (click for more info about VPSC!) - who have taken over the old Stables and given it some new life! They'll be set up at the northern end of the grandstand with paella (including a vegan option) ready from about 12:30, so make sure you don't pack your lunch!
With a couple of great coffee shops – The Velo Precinct and Kiosk on 16 - there is no shortage of food or drink options throughout the day for riders and spectators alike. Couple that with the historic Vic Park grandstand to view the racing across the day, and this is one not to be missed! We look forward to seeing you out at this one and the rest of the 2021 Super Series, and make sure you use #SuperSeries21 and tag @cyclingsuperseries in your social posts so we can see them all throughout the day!
The racing will kick off in the morning, with the fastest racing occurring in the afternoon. Based at Victoria park and using the "Short Course" you'll have the perfect opportunity to sit down, enjoy the hospitality on offer, and watch some exciting finishes.

FOOD AND DRINK
Victoria Park Social Club
New to the scene, VPSC have taken over the old Stables behind the grandstand. They'll be set up at the northern end of the grandstand slinging paella from about 12:30 til sold out!
Kiosk on 16
A favourite with the early-morning weekday crowd, Kiosk on 16 has a fun, relaxed atmosphere in their outdoor seating area complete with toys and games for kids and adults alike. Perfect for ducking away from the race for a moment to get your bearings again!
The Velo Precinct
Nestled right under the grandstand, the Velo Precinct is just as comfortable serving you a full breakfast, a deli-style lunch or just giving the kids somewhere to play while you grab a juice.
