Goldstars Story

The GC Goldstars CC is a leading cycling club in Gold Coast City actively promoting Road and Track cycling through its junior development program.

The Gold Coast Goldstars Cycling Club has, since its inception on 15th February 1993, actively promoted competitive cycling activities while encouraging social inter-action among its members and among the general cycling community. From an initial membership of 18 members, the Club has grown to become the Club of choice for Junior cyclists due to its successful Junior Development Program carried on by our Club Coaches and a host of actively involved parents and members.

The Goldstars inaugural meeting was held at the Pindara Sports Clinic in early 1993 with 17 attendees. By November that year, the Club was running organised time trial training on Robina Parkway at 6:00pm and by years end, with a membership of 36, was conducting Monday Time Trials with up to 43 regular riders.

On New Years Day 1994, the Club successfully ran the first New Years Day Open Criterium around the streets of Robina followed by an Open Track Carnival at Chandler Velodrome in Brisbane on the following evening. The New Years Day Open has been run every year since firstly in Robina around Manly and Cottesloe Drives before moving briefly to the Goldstars established Robina Holden circuit in Brabham Drive, Robina and, most recently, to the Nerang Cycling Complex where it attracts large fields including many of the Aussie internationals who use it as final preparation before contesting the Bay Series in Victoria and the “Tour Down Under” in January.

During the years the Club has been active, it has conducted Saturday morning handicap road races in Tallebudgera Valley until increased development drove us out of the Valley in 2000. Wednesday afternoon Criteriums were run on the Surfers Paradise raceway regularly drawing up to 140 riders. Criterium circuits were later established in Molendinar for a brief period with racing held both Wednesday afternoon and Saturday mornings. Sunday morning Criterium racing was held on the Robina Holden closed road from 2000 through to 2005 until, again, increased development moved us on. Currently, the Club runs a monthly road race on the Old Pacific Highway at Pimpama and Criteriums at both Computer St, Arundel and the Luke Harrop Performance Centre at Runaway Bay.

In the early years, the Club established a daily morning training ride from the Mermaid Waters Ambulance Station. The Goldstars Ride, as it was known, became very popular with Club members and non-members alike and was great source of new members often attracting up to eighty riders. The ride exists today as a public ride, after public liability concerns forced the Club to remove their endorsement.

The Club has always encouraged the discipline of Track Cycling running Track Carnivals at both Chandler in Brisbane and the Nerang Velodrome as well as Weekly Track events during the Summer Track season. Track is seen as the purest form of cycling without the ever changing technology of Road cycling and our junior cyclists are encouraged to learn their skills on the velodrome.

We’re off to a great start at the first mid-week twilight criterium race of the summer season with many familiar faces checking in at Nerang for a Wednesday hit-out. Swapping his leathers for lycra again, Mr Moto GP Bryan Staring has come back from Europe in fine form as he broke away from A Grade and will be looking for pole position in the coming weeks.

We nearly ran out of race numbers in B Grade this evening with over 30 riders on the start sheet including twinkle toes and footy legend Mat Rogers, but the star of the show tonight was Bradly Warnes with an easy down hill victory and a cheeky salute.

The Masters Story

Sunday is Raceday

Every Sunday (weather permitting) is raceday for the Gold Coast Masters. Numbers range from 50 to 70, divided into grades A to E. Our aims are to provide high quality racing in a safe and friendly environment, sheep stations are not at stake. Our mission statement is accurate. We have 4 different circuits, using a different one each week. Our club is not associated in any way with the UCI. You can come and try racing with us at anytime. Have a free trial ride and see why our club is one of the best supported clubs in Qld.

“Membership for the Masters runs from January 1st to December 31st for each year.

Membership fees are only $100 for the whole year. To be eligible you must be 30+ years for females and 35+ years for males .

To join to club simply follow this link and follow the prompts.”

Long Course Road Race – May 3rd

The first Sunday in May (3rd) will see the return of the much loved Gaven Road Race – Long Course. This is a tough race and we only hold it twice a year (May & October). The race starts at 7am because we have to be off the circuit by 9am according to our council/DMR/Police approvals. Please note, this is a popular event so be on time to sing on and warm up.

2014 was a great year for the Masters

2014 was a good year, we ended up with about 140 members. We have even more this year. We held regular social rides and training rides along with social events like Christmas in July. We also hold fun days with novelty events and regular free bbqs after racing.

What is Cyclocross?

Cyclocross is a combination of cycling and running that originated in the winter months in Europe. Because of the adverse weather conditions, European road cyclists developed cyclocross (CX) as a way to maintain fitness and cycling form over winter. The popularity of cyclocross has spread to north America and, more recently, Australia.

Cyclocross races are held outdoors, offroad. Races are relatively short, ranging from 20 – 60 minutes. Serious competitors use lightweight bicycles resembling road bikes. Courses include sections where the rider must dismount and run with or carry their bike.
