With the outstanding response we have had a few ex A grade riders have offered to help out some newer people on how to ride a handicap. At 6.15 Matt Smithson has offered to run a 5 min clinic on how to ride a handicap and then for him and a few others to ride around during the night helping some of the newer riders and slower groups go a bit faster. Why wouldn’t you come and join this fun night out. ... See MoreSee Less
Ride as fast as you can for as long as you can until someone faster passes you or you win 😁

Penrith Cycling Club with great support from Sinclair Automotive have decided to run our annual handicap at Sydney Motorsport Park to make one of the best events in cycling accessible to everyone. With so many new riders in the sport over the last few years we thought, let’s give them a chance to ride in a race that’s different !!! A handicap is about teamwork, its about your group catching the group in front and keeping in front of the group behind, pacing is the key and trying to be smooth as smooth = fast. And whats even better is if you do get caught by the group behind you can test yourself to see if you can hang on and finish……..Come out on the 16th Dec and give it a try. ... See MoreSee Less
So how does it work? Every group starts at different times or does a different amount of laps? How long or many laps do you race for?
Tonights racing was one with strong head winds and fast tail winds.
Results are as follows:
A Grade - 1st Peter Milostic, 2nd Peter Wakefield & 3rd Eddie Salas.
B Grade - 1st Cameron Winfield, 2nd Mark Hebden & 3rd Harry MacKay.
C Grade - 1st Cameron Goodchild, 2nd Graeme Spratt & 3rd Walter Machado.
D Grade - 1st Nicholas Perry, 2nd Mitchell Jeffries & 3rd Jeff Taggart.
A special mention goes to Cameron Winfield tonight. Under 15, restricted gears, strong winds, he is as light as a feather and claimed his 1st win in B Grade. Congratulations.
Till next week, happy riding. ... See MoreSee Less
Amazing race of Cameron! Congrats also to his personal coach and mentor.

We had several members of our club compete on Saturday in both the race (170km) and the ride (108km).
We had some great results with Nick Spratt finishing 11th and Peter Wakefield finishing 20th and 1st is his age category.
However, the most impressive ride of the day goes to long standing club member Graeme Spratt taking out 3rd place in the ride.
Penrith Cycling Club definitely had some perks on the day with LeTape Ambassador and Club Member Amanda Spratt arranging time to sit and talk to some of our club kids together with Esteban Chaves.
A great weekend had by all (maybe a few too many beverages on Saturday night). This is definitely an event that riders should put on their calendar for 2020. ... See MoreSee Less

What a fantastic debut Jack Strbik . For a rider to be thrown into the deep end riding his 1st open track carnival and it being a championship race, outstanding effort and the future is looking very bright for you with this type off talent, very impressive rides
Definitely a superstar, Jacko. Awesome.
