Fields of Joy CX (#FOJCX) is a Cyclocross venue developed and raced by Sunbury Cycling Club with very gracious support from Essendon Fields, Melbourne Aust.

Try doing this in your local park.

We broke soil today on what can only be described as a dream project.
Sunbury CC are proud as punch to be developing a purpose-built Cyclocross facility at Essendon Fields, 12km from the Melbourne CBD.

Here's some pics to whet your appetite.

Pic 1: This has been dubbed the 'Stairway to Heaven'. No barriers on this course, built-in steps.
A neighbour came from way over yonder and asked whether we were building a road. No joke.

Pic 2: First berm for the day. The orange vest is Jack O'Hare, MTB course designer and machine operator, SCC Club Prez Hutchy at the controls. Both have mad skillzzzzz. Say no more.

Pic 3: We said fast & flowy, this is what Marco came back with. Clearly he has gone completely mad. This series of berms is wide enough to accommodate a family sedan plus some. Rather than pull him back, we let him go. Marco earnt the nickname 'Picasso' today as he clearly is an artist with an excavator.
