Top Racing for 2018 SLCC Women's Series Finale

on .

It was an early start and beautiful morning for the Criterium - the final event in the 2018 SLCC Women's Series held at Victoria Park on 23 September.

Grades C and D had a really quiet and spacious track which produced some excellent racing. It was great to see the bunches working together but also the tactics come into play. Sprints were won by Vanessa Seeliger and Sharlene Harding taking out the D and C grade prizes. A much bigger group raced in the B and A grades, which we were thrilled about seeing as there were some tired legs out there with the SS the previous day - absolute champions for coming out again.

The racing saw riders working together, using the group, dropping back and then surging again for the sprints and the finish line. Sprint prizes for B and A grades went to Emma Seeliger and Staci McCudden.


Above: Sprint winners Staci (A grade), Emma (B grade), Sharlene (C grade) and Vanessa (D grade).

We had some riders new to racing joining us (Vanessa - second race) as well as seasoned professionals - all aiming for placings which made for an exciting morning of racing and finish to the 2018 SLCC Women’s Series. 

Congratulations to all the racers for your efforts today and for supporting the entire Series.

A big thank you to all our volunteers who supported the racers and kept them safe. Without this support, events like this would not be possible. Also to VLCC for working with us and sharing the track - this worked really well.

The morning went well thanks to the efforts of the Commisaire and volunteer teams: Graeme Zucker, Paul Trim, Ken Gooding, Robert Faulkner, Felicity Laing, Leanne Perugini, Judy Ireland, Carmel Barber, Anne-Marie Wesley, and thank you too, to James Caracoussis for the excellent pictures!

Women's Cycling Challenge 20km Time Trial - Round 2 Report

on .

On Saturday  April 21st, 32 Women from five clubs, headed down to Langhorne Creek to race in Round 2 of the Skinny Lattes Cycling Challenge. For those die hard fans of the "race of truth"' this was the perfect chance to test their legs before the State Championships in a couple of weeks, for those new to competition it was an opportunity to set a bench mark against which they will monitor their progress.

Skinny Latte Young Female Rider Awards

on .

The Skinny Lattes Cycling Club is thrilled to have formalised our project of supporting and encouraging young female cyclists through our annual awards.  This has been something we have been doing informally for a number of years but in 2011 the groundwork was done to establish two annual awards which are open to all junior female cyclists who are a member of a Cycling SA Club.


2011/2012 Jessica Mundy

The first of these awards was won by Norwood Club member Jessica Mundy. Jessica represented Australia in the Junior Cyclones team which competed in the 2011 Youth Commonwealth Games at Isle of Man in September; she then went to Copenhagen for the 2011 UCI Junior Road Worlds.

2012 has delivered well deserved results for Jessica, firstly at the National Track Cycling Championships in Adelaide and then when she won the 2012 Australian Junior Mountain Climbing championships held at Mount Buffalo in March.

She scored emphatic wins in both the Time Trial and Road Race disciplines to win the overall Alpe d' Buffalo General Classification. The Road Race stage was a gruelling event and on the run to the finish required the full 23km ascent of Mt Buffalo to the summit at Dingo Dell. Jessica Mundy broke away from the U19 women’s field on the climb to record a solo victory

This is the second time that the club has recognised Jessica’s talents and dedication to the sport.
