The Jack Wood Memorial Celebrates the life of Coburg Cycling Club member Jack Wood, who took his own life after a battle with mental illness.
The Jack Wood will now be a Kermesse to be held at Broadford State Motorcycle Complex on the freshly re-surfaced road race circuit.
2.1km of super smooth, super wide goodness.
Date will also now be Sunday 24th to avoid a clash with Euroa Crit.
Registration from 9am, first riders off at 10am
Women's series points accrue for all female participants, and especially the top 8 female placings.
Saturday 28 May at LaTrobe University, Bundoora
Races start from 8AM. All racing concludes by 1.30PM
Run as a kermesse race (graded scratch race), over a set time period, and with podium places awarded for the first 3 riders over the line at the finish. There will be separate prize for the winner of the intermediate sprint (1 or 2 sprints depending on grade). There is no KOM/QOM prize. Also note - not a points race! - this is different to previous formats, where intermediate sprint points counted toward final placings. No team prizes.

The Hell of the West doubles as our Combine Championships. This course has so many aspects which means that it could be anybody's day depending on how the race unfolds. Please note that the main climb is very steep for over 1k - you will need at least a 39-28 gearing ratio, but even then some people still end up walking.
There are different length races for the grades, so check EB for course details. Video from last year
