2021 MetroMap Super Series

Saturday 11 September - Friday 26 November

The 2021 MetroMap Super Series is one of the largest road racing series in Australia and provides Adelaide-based riders the best opportunity for elite-level road racing.  

The event sees over 300 competitors across eight grades of senior racing and is the one of the best cycling events in the calendar for all calibre of riders to compete in a professional environment. With 8 Junior grades at most rounds, there is truly a race for everyone. Competitors can range from amateur riders to current and former World Champions, WorldTour riders, Australian Champions, and Olympic medallists. 

As well as being great racing for participants, much of the Series is designed to be great spectating with a majority of the rounds being criteriums. You’ll be able to see the riders go around roughly once per minute at locations like Aldinga Beach, Pakapakanthi, Unley Oval, and Moonta – not to mention the East End Street Race! 

We’ve put together a complete guide to this year’s MetroMap Super Series so you can get amongst the action. Make sure you give the Super Series some love by using the hashtag #SuperSeries21 and tagging @cyclingsuperseries in your social posts while you’re out cheering on the riders.
