If you’re new to racing and have not held a racing licence before, you are eligible for a 4-week free trial. We strongly encourage new racers to take up this option and come along to try racing at our Cavanbah Centre events. Please make sure you also contact club handicapper Glen Hannan (handicapper@byronbaycycleclub.org.au) prior to your first event so that you can be welcomed and graded accordingly.

RULES

No licence, no racing.

Hands must remain on handlebars for the entire race, no victory salutes

Once your race is finished, you may continue rolling on the left of the track for half a lap and exit the track at the entrance to the carpark. Please be aware that other grades may still be racing and will be overtaking quickly

Overtaking of grades must be done to the right. It is the responsibility of overtaking groups to warn upcoming groups (e.g. yelling “B grade overtaking”) at which point the upcoming group must all move to the left and ride single file in tight formation until the overtaking group has passed and there is a 12m gap to the nearest rider. 

Grading is at the discretion of the club handicapper, and promotions/demotions between each race will be made in accordance with relevant recent results. If you record a 1st place or 3 podium places throughout a series, you will automatically be promoted for the next race.
