Brunswick Cycling Club  BCC - For all your track, road & CX needs since 1916. Home of @dirtydeedscx

Brunswick CC is joining up with Leeana from Cycles Galleria, Brunswick for a series of training rides in readiness for two of our signature races, the Pop Stewart Handicap on May 18 and the Alf Walker Memorial on July 27.
Every Thursday morning, Brunswick riders wanting a serious workout can join the CG shop ride that takes you to Kew Boulevard for a hot lap followed by a series of hillsprints.

Leeana has created a course that will make you faster and stronger but more importantly, more awesome all round and well versed in post ride coffee jargon.. so very Brunswick. This ride is for intermediate riders and above.
We depart CG Brunswick at 6:30am and we return by 8.. Bag drop is available too!
Must have good front and rear lights as the Boulie is dark these autumn/winter mornings

The Brunswick Cycling Club mourns the loss of Damion Drapac.

Alan Grindal, former Olympian, ran the Brunswick Junior Clinic for 26 years and remembers the first day Damion started riding on the track. He came along with his brother Patrick, Sister Alexandra and his parents Christina and Michael. It was 1996 and 8-year-old Damion began his love affair with the sport of cycling.

Ever since that day, Duda, as he was known to his family and friends, maintained an active interest in the Clinic, donating kit and always asking about how it was going.
He was a very good cyclist, who only recently decided to return to racing. Fitting training into a busy schedule, he worked his way back to elite A grade level with numerous wins and podiums, the most recent a 2nd in the Hawthorn CC Good Friday Crits. In that race he was beaten on the line and there were many international class riders behind him.
Whilst cycling is dear to all our hearts, we remember Damion above all as a genuine human being, a valuable member of society who led a worthy life contributing to the sport, his club and to making the world a better place. He also had a deep sense of justice, was fiercely loyal and generous.

Duda was working as a Doctor at the Austin and had set his sights on specialising in all accounts he was a gifted ,committed and deeply compassionate clinician. He also ran a successful side business/hobby of buying and selling vintage bikes and parts. He touched many people through his true passion for life, his tenacity and commitment to self improvement.
Michael Drapac shared this about his son. "He was my SON

He was an extraordinary brother

He was a devoted partner

He was to be a father

He loved his family

We can never forget this extraordinary man.

I loved him with all my heart"

The Drapac family are a major part of the Brunswick Cycling Club and our heartfelt condolences go to Michael, Christina, Patrick, Alexandra, Giulian, Sebastian and Damion’s partner Mariko.
Although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow and the grief is overwhelming, may looking back in memory help comfort and inspire us tomorrow.
