The SAMCA is the governing body for masters cycling in SA and it consists of the President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Public Officer and 2 delegates from each of the 3 member clubs - Adelaide Hills Masters Cycling Club (AMVCC), Southern Districts Veterans and Ladies Cycling Club (SDVLCC) and the Veterans and Ladies Cycling Club (VLCC). There are currently in excess of 450 members over the three SA masters clubs.
The SAMCA administers and promotes masters cycling in this state and is affiliated to the Australian Veteran Cycling Council (AVCC). The masters cycling category is open to females over 30 years and males over 35 in the year of membership.
There is also a "Come and Try" program for anyone new to the sport of competitive cyling for masters. The Come and Try program provides you with insurance whilst you are racing, as well as 15 minutes before and after your event is held. You are allowed to participate in one (1) come and try event before you will be required to take out Club Membership and an AVCC Racing Licence. For more information, go to the Club's website where you think you would like to take up this option.
If you are interested in joining please contact your local club for more information (refer links below).
2017 Criterium Championships
Here is the start list for the Crit Championships.
An assessment of the weather was taken 1700hrs Saturday night due to rain. The decision is to go ahead with racing tomorrow morning as there is a good likelihood of an easing of rain overnight.
We are in urgent need of some marshalls for the event. If you are available, or know of someone available, please be at the track 0830 and report to the race referee Bob Cotton.

Welcome back Mr. President
Paz Russo has had a few rides since his major brain tumour operations and treatment earlier in the year, but Dec 4th marked his comeback to competitive road racing when he lined up in G Grade with ten other competitors for the Classic Twin Peaks road race. Welcome back Paz. Congratulations also for taking on the presidency of SAMCA for a further year. The sport owes you a lot!
