The Canberra Cycling Club will be hosting the second edition of the Mark Carter Xmas Crit on Wednesday, December 21. The Carts Annual Xmas Crit is named in memory of the late Mark Carter, a former President of the Canberra Cycling Club who spent a lot of his spare time raising the profile of cycling in the Australian Capital Territory, as well as running the Summer Criterium series. The Xmas crit counts for Round 8 of the CCC Summer Criterium series, in which a regular weekly turnout of over 150 riders has been seen, with the record standing at 193 riders a fortnight ago.
Brumby's Bakery, courtesy of local guru bike racer Baden Burke, has come on board to sponsor the event which will see additional prize money on offer along with sumptuous Brumby's Bakery chrissy puddings for the winners. Local bicycle stores The Bikeshed and Hammer 'n' Cycle have proudly sponsored the Junior grade, with cycling accessory prizes to accompany their usual prize money. In the senior racing, Brumby's Bakery has added to the prize money put up by the Canberra Cycling Club for a total pot in excess of $1000.
Racing commences from 5.15pm with the junior grade, followed by Novice Women, D, C, B & A grades. Entries are taken on the night and any interstate visitors are more than welcome to participate. The race will be held at the Kingston Foreshore Criterium course down by lake Burley Griffin.
