Lucky enough to spend last night taking snaps at the opening round of Lidcombe-Auburn CC’s twilight crits for 2018/19. Perfect weather, amazing light, good sized fields. What more could a photographer want? Newington Armory near Sydney Olympic Park is a great little circuit, short, slick and ridiculously picturesque. If you’re in Sydney and haven’t raced … More GALLERY: Twilight Crits @ Newington Armory
Curious moment yesterday during the Elite Women’s criterium at the 2016 ATEC Expo at Sydney Olympic Park. Lidcombe-Auburn rider Joanna (who also happened to be overall Race Director) suffered a mechanical with a few laps to go. Who was there to help change her wheel? None of other than her hubby Steve, who just happened to … More Hurry up, Dear.
Sure I may be getting older. But Friday nights are still all about hitting clubs. Nowadays, of course, it’s cycling clubs. Last night saw another impressive turnout for both the LACC junior and senior track events at Lidcombe Oval. Check it out some time if you’re in Sydney, with or without your bike.
Another beautiful Thursday evening. Another great turnout for Lidcombe-Auburn Cycling Club’s twilight crits at the Newington Armory in Sydney Olympic Park. Plenty of black and gold on show, plus several riders from Penrith, Marconi and Suvelo. Not a bad way to spend a weeknight, is it?

The footage comes from last night’s criteriums run by Lidcombe Auburn Cycling Club at the new Newington Armory circuit near Sydney Olympic Park.

Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre, Homebush. A place where mere cycling mortals can compete in the shadows of greatness on roads once graced (or at least commuted upon) by such sporting giants as Serena Williams, Roger Federer and Lleyton Hewitt. At just 1.49km long and with no climbs to speak of, SOP is a classic … More Circuit review: SOP Tennis Centre
Sibling rivalry. It’s been around ever since Adam whacked his little-known brother, Keith, over the head with an apple and was sent to the naughty corner in the Garden of Eden. And it’s still very much alive and well today. Even in cycling. Now before you get the wrong idea, I’m not talking about the … More Sibling rivalry
There are cycling clubs. And then there are cycling clubs. I’ve experienced several different clubs in the last couple of years, and whilst all share a genuine passion for the bike, some just do it a whole lot better. My club, LACC, is pretty good, especially in the juniors. As is typically the case in … More Club Envy
