Bowlocross Logo
Bowl-O-Cross is looming. Not long till cyclocross comes to Holland Park Bowls Club. Sunday 5th of May. Mark it in your calendars, or just let Facebook tell you when it is. Here’s what the day will look like.
  • 12:00pm – Registration open
  • 12:30pm – Kids event
  • 12:45pm – Registration close
  • 1:00pm – Heats
  • 2:00pm – Relay event
  • 3:00pm – Finals
  • 4 – 5pm – Presentations, good times

Registration will be on the day. Competitors will come under one of three categories:

  • Jack High (kids – U/17 and U/13): $5 participation license + $2 registration
  • Barefoot (outlandish outfits, wildly inappropriate bikes, you know the score): $5 participation license + $5 registration
  • Full Whites (perfect tyre pressure, lycra, game face): $20 race license (if you need it) + $5 registration

CA, MTBA and BMX race licenses accepted.

So, for example, if you’re a kid having a crack at cyclocross for the first time, it’s $7 all up. For a enterprising university student with a  mankini and a mountain bike, that’s $10. If you’re in it to win it, that’ll be $25 (if you need a race license.)

The course is as follows:

For those new to the concept of cyclocross, this video from the Bicycle Queensland A Grade race at Toowong earlier this year gives you the gist.
