BYRON WINTER CRIT SERIES.png

Racing is back for Winter 2021!!!

 

Racing is back at the Byron Bay Cycle Club’s Cavanbah Crit Track. To celebrate our return to regular racing, we're hosting a 6-round Winter series, starting 13 June. Rounds will be scheduled on the 2nd & 4th Sunday of the month over June - August, with the option to have catch-up rounds in between if we have any wet weather cancellations. 

PLEASE NOTE: Round 3 will be held on 18 July (instead of 11 July) to avoid clashing with the Tour de Brisbane. 

Each round will include separate scratch races for A-D grade, with a combined accumulated points score tally going towards overall Male & Female Winter Crit Champions prizes at the end of the series (overall champions prizes TBC)

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.

The Byron Winter Crit Series is open to riders of all clubs with a valid AusCycling racing licence. We encourage all local and visiting cyclists to come along and race, as well as support our racing by volunteering as traffic marshals throughout the season. By volunteering at an event, you will not only be contributing to the management of our races but also be earning points for yourself in the overall series. If you would like to offer your help as a volunteer at a round during the series, please contact us to schedule an appropriate date.

RULES

Riders from all clubs with a valid AusCycling racing licence. 4-week free trial memberships available for new racers HERE

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.
