After a successful introduction of a junior cycle series in 2016, VOGA are proud to present our 2017 dates for our junior cycle series.

We have changed the format from last year, introducing more rides with an emphasis on the social ride aspect as well as providing opportunity for those who want to race.

With support from the Hepburn Shire, RACV Goldfields and Ballarat Bicycle Centre all participants at each of our social rides will receive an entry into our grand prize - a $300 voucher that can be spent at Ballarat Bicycle Centre. The more social rides you attend, the more entries you receive.

The winner will be drawn on November 19th, just before the trophy presentation for the Junior Brackenbury - and the winner must be there to collect their prize.

Its worth signing up as a recreational club member as well. Not only do you get insurance coverage from MTBA, the discounts you receive should you attend all social rides and a race or 2 means you will actually save money. Very cheap entertainment!

Social rides will be best suited to geared 'mountain' style bikes, or CX bikes if you are feeling strong!

For those wanting to race - there will be junior categories at the upcoming Dirty Rat CX series (or have a go at the lower grades against the adults - you might surprise yourself!!) as well as the Junior Brackenbury MTB race in November.

Social rides will take approximately 60-90mins and will be led by VOGA members all of whom have their WWC. Rides will start at 11am but keep an eye on the VOGA Facebook page just in case they change (we will try our best not to do this).
