If you have always wanted to race at Stromlo and never had the chance , now is the time ! Round one of the Corc racing season and it is lots of fun , race hard but finish with a smile on your face . I usually find a nice cafe afterwards to contemplate the drive home ,and laugh at my abysmal performance in the race ..... ok not really but its heaps of fun all the same Give it a go .... you know you want to !!

We usually set a loop of about 6 or 7 kms for Sunday morning club XC races. Different categories compete over various numbers of laps of this course, ranging from 5 laps for the Senior Men down to 2 laps for Sport D Men & others. There are 17 categories for riders to enter , based on sex, age or ability . We trust riders to enter their appropriate & correct category, but the registration crew can advise you if you are not too sure about what to do. Middle level riders should expect to lap the course in approx. 22 - 26 mins. There is a sign listing all the categories on display at race rego. The course is open to ride after 8 AM Sunday, so if you want to, you can do a lap before deciding which category you want to ride in. Registration is open between 8:30 - 9:30 AM.

We start the Senior Men ( 5 laps ) & Sport A Men ( 5 laps) together as close to 9:30 AM as we can ; then we start the remaining categories in quick succession, working down from the 4 lap riders to the 2 lap group. So the plan is to have all riders out on the course by around 10 AM. The post race "story session " & socialising are a feature of our races - usually all riders have finished by around 11:30 AM
