A criterium, or crit, is a race consisting of several laps around a short, closed circuit. Criteriums are a staple of the local racing scene in Sydney and we have lots of them! Here's an overview of the main tracks.
Our local track. This tough 2km bumpy concrete course hosts some of the best criterium racing on the Sydney calendar. The course winds its way around playing fields so watch out for the dogs and members of the public straying onto the track! Heffron is open to cross winds, which can change the dynamics of the race. There are a few corners where you can lose out if your cornering is poor. The rubber band effect on this course is pretty hard going, more so as it's a rough and slow surface. Racing here is hard work and bad placement in the bunch makes it harder.
