The Shimano Supercrit is St Kilda Cycling Club‘s largest event of the season, culminating in both Women’s and Men’s elite criterium races being run around their regular closed-street track in Port Melbourne.
We negotiated to have a demo lap between the premium women’s and men’s events, complete with Brompton World Championships style folded Le Mans start.
Unfortunately, being a demonstration lap we were capped at a maximum of 30 riders, otherwise we’d have likely had over 50 by the end.
Our field did include SBS Cycling and Tour de France commentator Matt Keenan, and Captain America!
We look forward to doing it all again next year, better and much, much bigger!
