NEWCASTLE Velodrome will host a nail-biter third and final round of the Newcastle Cyclocross this Sunday.
This cycling discipline is like no other; it is fast, fun and furious, and the worse the weather, the more fun it is.
Taking place in rain, hail or shine, the competition is held inside a spectator-friendly arena for the whole family to enjoy.
In the second round, held in July, local talent Cameron Ivory won the under-23 national champion title - all while riding in rain and mud.
This Sunday, he will showcase the national champion jersey and compete for a $2000 cash prize.
He will race against other entrants on varying surfaces, such as grass, dirt, sealed road and sand.
Following on from National Stroke Week, money received at the door will be donated to the National Stroke Foundation.
Rosie's School of Rock will perform on the day and special guest commentators will also attend the event.
■ The last Cyclocross race of the season will be held this Sunday, September 29, at the Newcastle Velodrome.
