Bombtrack Treadly Racing (BTR) was created in 2017, rising from the ashes of a team of like-minded individuals who just wanted to turn up to a race and feel like they had somewhere to be! When we were approached by BTR to get everyone onto Bombtrack CX bikes, we were stoked to be working with some great people and one of our favourite shops, Treadly Bike Shop in Adelaide - a long-time supporter of Bombtrack from the very beginning. The riders of Bombtrack Treadly Racing spent their 2017 season driving all over the Australian countryside to race the Australian National Cyclocross Series, as well as their home race series in Adelaide, with some excellent results across both Men’s and Women’s Elite, Expert and several Masters categories with several race wins and some very impressive series standings by the end of the year.
With varying styles of riders, the team race on everything from full-carbon race bikes like the Hook 3 all the way down to the SSCX weapon that is the Arise, with custom builds on all of them to accomodate their sponsors’ product from Praxis Works and Schwalbe for cranksets and tyres. The bike that won the most races this year was Becca Gross’s Hook 2!
The highlight for the season was almost definitely the first race weekend of the season in Bright and Mt Beauty over in Victoria - the backdrop of the Alpine region is perfect for the beautiful sport of cyclocross!
