Road cycling is a disciplines that is made popular through events like the Tour de France and Giro d’Italia. There are many disciplines within road, including road races (point A to point B), criteriums (800m-3km loop), Individual Time Trials and Team Time Trials (anywhere from 10-30km).
All VSCC races are criteriums for a few reasons:
- for safety purposes all races are held on closed road circuits
- having a loop course makes it easier for organisers to keep an eye on the participants
- criteriums are essentially scratch races, meaning the categories start together and first across the line wins!
All road participants must have a road bike. Please note that CV members must adhere to the CA technical guidelines. See the 'Entry Rules & Categories' page for more information.
BMX (Bicycle Moto Cross) is one of the fastest growing sports in Australia. It is one of the only sports where total family participation can take place. Riders of all ages(from 2 to 50+) can compete in organised race meetings throughout Australia. The sport of BMX racing ranges from Club level right through to State, National and World Championship level for all ages. BMX is also an Elite Olympic Sport! Any rider has the chance to ride at National Championships and compete in World Championships.
Any 20 inch or 24 inch (cruiser) BMX bike will be fine. Remove any mudguards, chain guards, kick-stand, pegs and reflectors, for the safety of yourself and other riders. Ensure that there are no sharp edges on your handlebars (i.e. No torn grips with exposed metal) or pedals, etc. You need a rear hand brake that works. One of the Officials will check your bike for you and help with any minor adjustments.

Mountain Biking is a great sport for juniors as it take place away from traffic. In the VICS MTB, all MTB races are cross country events that see riders doing multiple laps of a 1km – 3km circuit. The courses range from beginner level to intermediate, with the occasional obstacle or climb added in for more challenge and excitement.
A mountain bike is a must for these events however you don’t need an expensive bike to try racing the VICS MTB, any kind of mountain bike will be fine for your first race.
