Teenage Exorcists

Location! Location! Location!

Well, we have a location for our next round on July 19th!

You will be racing here...
Which is here

Some of you will remember it from a number of years ago when we held a race there. Looking back at that race report I'm reminded how things have changed (Warrack Leach had his first A grade race and AJ and Amity didn't have a CX bike).

We will have entries open very soon and will provide the world with more information on where to park, where to sign on and a few other surprises!

In the mean time, if you want to get your legs warmed up or follow up on the fun you had at Cramwell Park last week you should consider a road trip up to the nation's capital for the next two rounds of NCXS. Entries and more details are here

Stiff Necked Fools

Allo Allo,

It was pointed out to me in a conversation this week that we hadn't posted anything after Round One... Chalk it up to a hectic double header race weekend followed by all the organising team being spread around the state/country in the coming weeks.

Anyways... here's some great shots and videos from kind spectators. Think of it as an acid flashback to another great day of racing and cheering on lycra clad fools.

Video Evidence of the day...

Some great shots
Shaun T
Tim Renowden
Matthew Townsend

And of course don't forget the coming weekend the 'circus' comes to town with the arrival of the Vic leg of the National Cyclocross Series (NCXS). It's being run by Sunbury/Fields Of Joy at Cramwell Park. There's a lot of information here and more on their facebook page. Read it, enter, volunteer, tune in, get rad. 

Our next round is July 19th, more info on that to come when this upcoming storm of CX awesome passes Melbourne.

Verse Chorus Verse

Apologies for our tardiness in posting the results from yesterday but the CX hangover affects each of us differently...

Some like to swear off CX, some take some time with another poison (like road bikes) and some go out for a 'hair of the dog' and spend the day surrounded by tape again...

Here are the results for Saturday's extravaganza... (except for kids, we are still sorting that out). We haven't removed DNS's yet either. So consider them 'preliminary results', OK?

As always... if you have any questions or issues with the results, please take a deep breath and read this.

Men's CX A
Men's CX B
Men's CX C/Open
Women's Races

Also - Can we get a virtual round of applause for all the people who volunteered their time on Saturday (and for that matter Sunday @ FOJCX). There's a lot of moving parts to get these races run and done... all help is always appreciated. #thankavollie

From A Tower

As the clock ticks down on an action packed weekend of local CX it's been the usual hive of pandemonium at DDCX HQ.

A full start list can be found here... some people have had their grades 'adjusted' based on past performances (in both CX and other cycling disciplines). So PLEASE check the list.


The day's schedule is as follows:

Delicate soul


Do you like stabbing at grass with pointy objects? Laying down crime scene tape? Chewing gum and taking names? Wearing a sweet orange jacket?

Boy do we have a job for you on the 23rd.

It's the volunteers that help to make DDCX the ongoing success that it is, and we always love to see your faces, new and old, turning up to help us out. So if you feel like joining us for the day, an hour, a few minutes, please e-mail us at ddcx.volunteers@gmail.com. We get your name, mobile, if/when you're racing and any preferred roles, you get some stakes, a vest (probably) and swag.

You can keep the swag. That was implied. We'll probably need the stakes and vest back.
