As part of the Junior Development Program the Committee introduced an initiative to support our juniors to realise their dreams of perhaps one day racing overseas. Antoine was the recipient of a grant which contributed to his Belgium racing experience. He is away for three weeks in total and has sent us this blog from week 2. Randwick are proud to support Antoine with his dream to race in Europe. Keep up the great work!Belgian RBCC Blog Week 2

Unfortunately due to the Camden Cycling Club not receiving police approval for the race, the much anticipated Razorback Hillclimb has been CANCELLED. We apologise to everyone who was looking forward to it, but hope it will be rescheduled soon.
THANK YOU to everyone who supported our event. We hope it will be the first of many!
Please take a minute now to check what date you have been allocated and make a note of it in your diary. You will receive a reminder email a few weeks before your scheduled date and should you need to swap please make these arrangements yourself and then advise your team captain.
Without you all our proud history of racing at Heffron Park for over 40 consecutive years wouldn’t be possible – so thank you! Saturday racing is also a big contributor to our bottom line which makes initiatives like our junior development program and cost price kit for our members possible.
RBCC Committee2018 Saturday Racing Volunteers Roster
As you are aware, for the first time last year the Club supported a Masters Racing Team. The team was funded by three sponsors being KOM Financial Advice, CPP Wind Engineering and Metrowelding. We would like to continue with the team in 2018 and are now calling for expressions of interest from anyone interested in being a part of it, noting there are up to 10 spots available.
The purpose of the Masters Racing Team is to allow some of our up and coming riders to participate in open events, gaining the experience of working in a team and learning from some of our more experienced riders. Being recognised by the club and in an official team will provide motivation and inspiration to riders. In return, the riders will be ambassadors for our club and will be mentors to our Under 19 Members.
The criteria that you will need to meet to be considered for the team is:
• Be over 30 years of age
• Be a financial member of RBCC
• Be racing A Grade on a Saturday at Heffron Park consistently
• Be able to commit to attending at least 5 open races during the year (noting these usually involve travel given they are held in country locations of NSW) and base your training around this race calendar
• Be prepared to take on a mentor role for our Under 19 members
• Participate in RBCC club rides when possible
• Participate in the RBCC Club Championships program
• Be a good team player and role model for the Club
Need some new RBCC kit? Then look no further, the Champion System online store is now open! The store will be open until 18 February 2018 with orders to be delivered by 16 March 2018.
If you are a returning customer please login or alternatively register as a new customer.
Don’t forget we do have stock of some standard items at the Clubhouse and you can purchase these on Saturdays while racing is on (providing we have what you want in stock!). We also have some sizing samples at the Clubhouse so you can try on before placing your online order. Otherwise, treat yourself to something new or different as the possibilities are endless! Don’t forget also that Champion System offer a crash replacement offer of 30% of RRP should you have a mishap! Likewise all their products have a one year warranty!
We are delighted to announce that Tyron Bicknell has joined our Committee as a General Committee Member.
Nowadays he can be found working as a Project Manager in construction, looking after his 6 month old daughter, and playing with his two dogs! He enjoys getting down to Heffron and racing for RBCC whenever life permits, taking part in mountain bike races and going on the odd adventure ride.
Tyron is looking forward to sitting on the Committee and giving back to the club that’s given him so much over the past 15 years.
