Four seasons in one day for Race 1 of the FOCUS CROSSFIRE CUP held in 'Potting Mix Park', (Park 6), North Adelaide. It rained!
This was possibly the biggest club race to date with 201 riders signing up and pinning on a race number, including over 20 Little Xers.
Lisa 'LJ' Jacobs - Australia's current and three-time (and only) Elite Womens Cyclo-Cross Champion and Rapha-Focus rider pitched in to help run a well-received introductory skills clinic for 45 women and girls prior to the race, with many new women trying out racing for the firs time.
So for the first time PACC not only fielded a Junior Grade proper, there were three separate women's grades on the course at the same time which made for fantastic racing!
We're also getting a bit fancy with PACC results this Winter.
Firstly, if you raced create yourself a login at www.crossresults.com (via email or Facebook) because if your name is on the results sheet you can vote on how hard/fun/wet/hilly the course was, and in return you can see race predictions and info on your nemeses as the databases of events you do build up.
Full results including lap times, links to photo albums, tweets and insta (remember #pacccx !) are up at crossresults.com. If you have got a photo album to share, you can add it to the list yourself.
