The Queensland Cyclocross season has kicked off again for the year. Get your slice of bowls club/cycle sport fun on Sunday 24 May at Bowl-O-Cross 2015. This flyer, by the remarkable Smoke Creative, features perennial racer Daniel Angus with his daughter Eleanor, cutting it up at last year’s event.

Here’s all you need to know:

  • Date: Sunday 24 May 2015
  • Time: Noon to 5pm
  • Location: Abbotsleigh Street, Holland Park Bowls Club

The course will include grass, bitumen, and barriers, and maybe some mud. There are kids and adults categories.

Entrants will need a Cycling Australia or MTBA racing license. If you do not have a racing licence you can purchase a day license on the day for $20.

Enter on the day. No pre-registration.

All competitors will have at least two races. Then open grade will race twice in the same groups. The A/B grade riders will race a heat round, then be seeded for their respective final. Races will be 3-4 laps per race depending on the final course length. A rough guide to the afternoon will be as follows:

11:30am Registration open
12:30pm Registration closes
12:30pm Kids U7/U13
12:50pm Race 1 – U15 / Newcomers / Open Grade
