GENERAL REGULATIONS

  • No short cutting the track even if it is not bunted.

  • Race numbers must be displayed on the handlebars of the bicycle. The number plate must be readable, so it must be fastened as flat as possible. Altering, cutting or placing of unauthorised sponsors’ logos on numbers will result in a penalty. You can keep your number plate as a memento of your race.

  • Riders must register before they will be allowed to compete.

  • All riders must wear an Australian Standards (or approved international standard) Full Face helmet at all times when riding and racing. You will be required to wear fully enclosed foot wear and gloves are recommended.

  • For U17, U15 and U13 Categories, full finger gloves/full length jersey/knee pads/elbow pads are mandatory

  • You are allowed to change bikes in between your runs.

  • You must be present or be represented at the ceremony at the end of the race to claim your podium awards

  • No garbage policy: please don’t litter out on the track. 

  • No cheating policy: you must follow the track. It will be clearly marked with arrows, bunting tape, flags and signs. If we see you cheating, you will not be allowed to participate. 

  • Rider down procedure – if you come to an accident out on the track you MUST stop and make sure the rider is ok. If he/she is not, stay with him/her and send the next rider straight back to the event centre to let us know what happened.

  • If an event is deemed unsafe because of storm, rain, fire or wind we will pause it, assess the situation and if possible restart it again later.

  • Passing: being friendly out on the track goes a long way. Let the rider you are about to pass know when and on which side. E.g. “rider coming up, passing on your right when you are ready”. Then say thanks and keep on pinning.  If you are being passed find the next best place to move to the side and let them pass.
