Canberra Cycling Club's rising star Cameron Rogers and Canberra Off-Road Cyclists' (CORC) Claire Aubrey dominantly rode to the top step of the podium at Round 1 of the AusCycling Cyclo-cross NSW/ACT State Series, held at Stromlo Forest Park and hosted by CORC.

Rogers, a 2021 junior national champion on the road and track, led from start to finish in Canberra on a classic sun-filled autumn day in the Bush Capital.

2018 and 2019 Australian U23 UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships representative Declan Prosser (Canberra CC) and cross-country mountain biking stalwart Andrew Blair (CORC) rounded off the A-Grade Men's podium in second and third.

ACT cyclo-cross veteran Claire Aubrey (CORC) reigned supreme in A-Grade Women, crossing the finish line with a final advantage of more than two minutes ahead of Masters 1 national champion Kate Mathewson (Manly Warringah CC) and U23 rider Anya Tatarinoff (Central Coast CC).

In a promising start to the cyclo-cross season, a total of 87 riders pinned a number on in Canberra.

The largest field of the day was that of B-Grade Men, which saw 37 riders battle it out across seven laps.

The racing now rests for one week before travelling to Sydney for Round 2 of the AusCycling Cyclo-cross NSW/ACT State Series at Dunc Gray Criterium Track on May 16, hosted by Parklife CC.

The 2021 CORC Cyclo-cross Series (held in conjunction with Round 1 of the NSW/ACT State Series) will resume on May 23 at Wanniassa.
