This is your President speaking...

Some further changes to UQCC Club Crits:

Firstly, Club Crits will now be open to all Clubs, not just UQCC.

There will be a $10 Fee to enter Club Crits to cover the related expenses of First Aid, Race numbers, Coffee etc. Also to contribute to hosting the Charles Coin / Mardi Bartlett which runs at a loss despite strong numbers and generous sponsorship.

We will have Podiums and there will be prize money which will be a function of entry numbers. As a result, the Club will be a little more strict on Handicaps.

UQCC Member Students will be exempt from the Entry Fee maintaining our foundational value of free racing for UQCC Students. That means anyone who is a student at any level, and a UQCC member. Volunteers will get a free race entry for every race they help with, as will our Commissaires.

Love 🐻 and the UQCC Executive

The UQCC Executive met this evening, unfortunately we spent the whole evening on the one topic, and as it turned out, the one person.

Congratulations Brycen Fletcher, you're now in A Grade.

Good morning, this is your President speaking.

Well and truly post covid and more riders than ever are racing overseas. As a result, A Grade numbers have dwindled and often the A Graders who are available are hell-a strong.

Uni is introducing an Elite Grade within A Grade for NRS level riders. Then moving the Club Level A Graders back up from B to A. Elites would have a different number.

A Graders can Podium in Elites but Elites can't podium in A, like any mixed Grade racing.

Cheers 🐻

Queensland Track Series Round 1
Chandler - Last Time Ever!
June 1

I can't pretend to like the old Chandler Velodrome, I have no fond memories, no crazy tales to tell. When I first saw it, I thought it resembled the Number 4 reactor at Chernobyl. I was happy we'd already had our children, I went home and burnt the clothes I was wearing.

But that's to say Round 1 of the QLD Track Series won't be awesome! And it's only a couple of weeks away!

So hurry up and enter so we can say goodbye to this hideous eyesore of a Velodrome and look forward to it being demolished and replaced with a beautiful new carpark.

The 2024 Charles Coin Memorial and Mardi Bartlett Classic is only a few weeks away! The UQCC organising committee is going to great lengths to achieve two critical objectives.

1. Make it a great experience.
2. Break even.

UQCC is committed to supporting the local Cycling scene which is why we host Track Events, regular Crits, Junior and State Championships, Road Races, CycloCross, Time Trials, whatever AusCycling ask us to host. As one of the biggest Clubs we see it as our part to play. We don't charge for our crits so we rely on people turning up supported by sponsorship.

Help us help you. Come and race!
Road Races Saturday, TT's Sunday.

Thank you to our sponsors for 2024:
- Brodie Chapman
- Fitzroy Island Resort
- Taylor Cycles

Battle of Arses went down to the wire. We tend to do very well in the higher grades, we haven't traditionally had the numbers in the lower grades. Our ladies across the board did very well, our A & B Grade Men consistently strong, C Grade men I would say need a little more organisation.

Which left us with the D Grade Men, a category we don't usually have any representation. Clayton was leading but a mechanical led to an early start to the CX Race and HWCC picked up 1st to 4th and the win. Our trackies came to make up some D Grade numbers, they did that very well.

Actual results to follow, great morning, beautiful day, brilliant racing and some wonderful banter. Well done UQ, congratulations HWCC!
