SUNDAY RIDE - Corsa Dello Stivale

As communicated earlier this month we have deferred the No Excuses ride until this weekend Sunday the 20th  and will use the Ride to support the St Clair Cup Criterium known as the “Corsa Dello Stivale”. As we know from our rain soaked trial lap the St Clair development has created a fantastic criterium circuit which AV Jenning has offered to host the Cycling SA Super Series – Stage 6.

The BG No Excuses Ride will be on Sunday November 20th we will ride Anzac Hwy, Outer Harbor and then return via Port Road for Coffee at the St Clair village.
It’s called the “Race of the Boot” because the circuit is boot shaped. However on the theory that everything sounds sexier if it’s said in Italian it is known as ….
Corsa Dello Stivale
The Cycling SA Super Series – Stage 6 – AVJennings St Clair Cup Criterium known as the “Corsa Dello Stivale” event will be on Sunday, 20 November 2016 at St Clair on a 1.05km boot shaped course around the central park and waterways on St Clair Avenue.

Racing starts at 9:00am through to approx. 1:30pm and will include:
·         Masters (9;00am start)
·         Elite men (9:55am start)
·         Elite women (11:05am start), and 
·         Juniors (TBC)

All the major SA teams will be there (including Sam Web’s USG-Bike Station Racing Team) and young Bastardi Lewis and Elliot Walker will probably be racing in the Juniors (if included in the program).

The event is sponsored by AVJennings and we will be there to present prizes to the winners.
It is hoped that all the Bastardi Gruppetto can call in and enjoy some of the racing as part of the Sunday ride.

Sofies Ride

Last Sundays was meant to be Sofie’s ride when we celebrate the birth on the 9 November 2012, Alf Macolino & Chris Withams granddaughters Sophie & Sofie. As you know they shout the group coffee and cake. Unfortunately last Sunday wasn’t fun in the weather department and while we note some BG’s braved the conditions Alf and myself though discretion the better part of valor.

Hence Sofie’s ride will be this weekend.

Cheers Aldo
