The Cycling South Australia School Series is back for Term 1! This term we are holding 5 rounds with 2 rounds held at Belair National Park and the remainder at Victoria Park. The Belair rounds will be returning to the hill climb TT for both occasions giving competitors a chance to measure their improvements. The rounds at Victoria Park will be held on a few different circuits to mix things up and keep competitors on their toes! Skills sessions will follow a progression and will target beginner, intermediate and expert to cater to all different skill levels!

CSASS is open to all school aged children aged 8 – 16. If you’re just a beginner, don’t stress! We welcome riders of any ability and offer free bike hire for all our participants. With every session being run by our Cycling Australia accredited coaches, you’re in very capable hands!

For those who are already comfortable on a bike and looking to perfect their craft, this is a great opportunity to get some extra time on the bike, perfect your skills and race against some friends!

Round 2 will focus on developing bunch riding skills!
Riders in their groups will take part in drills aimed at improving their ability to ride in a bunch. Each group will be lead by a CSASS coach and will practice riding closely to each other developing their comfort and bike handling skills with the movements of the bunch. Bunches will progress to forming pacelines and rolling turns which is essential for riding in a breakaway or as a team!

Round 4 - Information

Event: Graded Criterium

Round 4 will bring us back to Victoria Park for a criterium race. Due to the nature or criterium racing being fast, tight and technical the aim of this weeks skills session will be to develop the ability to ride in a straight line whilst being close to other riders. Being comfortable rubbing shoulders with your opponent is an important skill to master for any cyclist and is one that is sometimes missed. The skills session is designed to increase bike handling skills that build our riders confidence on the bike to benefit them in racing and general riding.

Location: Victoria Park Grandstand
