You will notice our focus on sports medicine - which is the hallmark of all events organised by the Perth Integrated Health Cycling Group. Health and wellness is our standard as we aim for our events to be not only well organised but at the same time such to promote health in the cyclists that participate in it.
Thanks to FILA Australia - all registered participants of CAGF 2016 will also be provided with an amazing shopping voucher - found only in your Riders Participant Pack which will entitle you to a massive 60% off the RETAIL cost of all FILA items both new and established at their Watertown Store from the 16th May to the 31st May 2016. One of the many more reasons why we value add our events such as this.
We are also excited to welcome the Arbitrage Racing Team to CAGF. Let's see how you go with your timing in comparison to our resident National Road Series (NRS) team at this event!
The generous offer of Bali Bike Hire for Lucky Draw prizes which we will announce for those who sign up by the 1st May 2016 is our way of promoting businesses who operate here in Western Australia that benefit from our export dollars elsewhere. Linda Lukies is an ardent cyclist and by supporting her business enterprise in Bali with your next cycling trip you are in fact assisting a local Australian in the success of her company.
will once again be our official timers for CAGF as they help monitor our TWO King of the Mountain (KOM) / Queen of the Mountain (QOM) sections at Wallangara South and Heritage Drive for this year's event.
Heritage Drive has tested many an established cyclist and can you beat the current Strava records during this KOM on the 15th May 2016?
Can you make the grade on the Blackchrome Gran 100 this coming May? The Blue Chip timing records will show who makes it as the KOM or QOM for the 2016 CAGF!
Don't be deceived by the so-called short sprint up because as you turn LEFT from Admiral Rd in Wungong Dam towards Wallangara South - it greets you within a false flat and a climb that challenges everyone. Awaiting the CAGF Medio and Blackchrome Gran and once again those braving the added on 180 km ultimate challenge!
Blackchrome Sportswear are the official sponsors for the Blackchrome Gran 100 and also the official jersey suppliers for CAGF 2016. Limited number of jerseys and T-shirts will be available on sale at the time of the Pack Collection which will be from the 9th to the 11th May 2016. Registered participants will be notified by email of their collection dates.
We recognise that cycling is for everyone and as such we have a reprisal of our 2015 CAGF Piccolo 40 km route once again in 2016. Characterised as a FLAT course - it is a great one for new and developing riders wishing to get into riding events.
The Medio and Gran distance riders who qualify within the specified time can also opt to extend their ride to do the Piccolo described above!
