The Classics team have been monitoring the conditions of the Dirty Bowral course in the Belanglo State Forest hourly over the past 72 hours.
Due to the extremely heavy rainfall this week, and high wind gusts predicted tomorrow morning, the course has unfortunately been deemed unsafe for both riders and crew.
It is with extreme disappointment that we are postponing the Dirty Bowral event on Saturday 11th December, 2021.
The Crit and Gran Fondo events are all still scheduled to proceed.
All riders will have their entry automatically deferred to the new event date of Saturday 15 October, 2022.
If you are unable to make the new event date, please request a refund via the Refund Form button below. Refund requests are open until 2 January, 2022.
Your refund will be processed within 3 weeks.
REFUND FORM NOW CLOSED.
Rider safety will always be our priority and we do not make this decision lightly.
The Classics Team thank you all for your continued support throughout a trying 2021!
We look forward to hosting our inaugural Dirty Bowral event soon.
