Tour of the Barossa

The final race in the 2016 Elite Teams Super Series is around the St Clair criterium course. As a result AV Jennings has a free entry in the Tour of the Barossa for a team of 4-6 riders.

The team is able to enter in all 3 days (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) or just the Saturday and Sunday using a 2 Day Pass. 

So Brian is looking to see if he can get at least 4 BG's to compete. If your'e interested you will need a CA racing licence or be willing to purchase a 3 race licence.

Please contact Brian or myself if your interested. 

If we get a team together we may do a club pilgrimage to lend support.
