Race Format

Racing is in the XCO format and will follow Auscycling technical regulations

There will be a mass start of one or more categories together. There is often a start loop in the first lap only (depending on the venue). Please self-seed on the start line with faster riders at the front

Do not deliberately obstruct a faster rider trying to pass. If you want to pass a slower rider, call out in a friendly way and state which side you will pass. Please be courteous and nice to each other so we all have a good day.

Tricky obstacles will have clearly marked B-lines. Please use these if you need to.

In these Grade races, the track will be closed once the first A grade rider crosses the finish line. No more laps can be started after this.

Course Markings

The course will be bunted and marked appropriately. If you do happen to leave the track, you must rejoin where you left, otherwise you can be disqualified.

Marshals and Course Safety

There will be marshals on the course with 2-way radios. If you are the first to encounter an injured rider, you must stop and render assistance. Send the next rider onwards to advise the marshals or commissaire. Riders providing assistance can have their times adjusted so that they are not disadvantaged.

The marshals are there for your safety and you are required to follow their instructions particularly in case of emergency.

Please advise timing staff if you withdraw from the race, and return your race number.

Spectators must watch for riders and stay out of their way at all times.


Podiums for the U11 will be during the adult race

Grade podiums will occur once racing has finished.
