Every year on during the March long weekend, Pemberton comes alive with top quality bike racing. The criterium on Saturday is very tough and last year’s heat made it a true test. The road race on Sunday involves a great mix of climbing up the Pump Hill climb and scenic rollers though the tall tress. Watch out for the finish!
The horrible bush fires that are still burning in the Great Southern have unfortunately forced the cancellation of the Karri MTB Cup, but the Pemberton Classic is still on!
The main challenge to participate is getting accommodation! Given it’s a long weekend, it’s often tight down there. The Pemberton Visitor Centre is there to help with last minute accommodation in the area.
Here is the kicker…
The APRC will announce next week the plans for a SPR Road Race Championship. It will be open to all SPR riders racing in graded road races this year. The Pemberton Classic is the first race of the SPR Championship, so sign up and get racing in the black and green!
