To protect junior riders our races comply with guidelines set by Auscycling. These guidelines are designed to manage the amount of time a junior rider is allowed to race for and varies from discipline to discipline. We would rather juniors went hard for a shorter time and finished with a smile rather than doing too much and ending up busted and disappointed!
The minimum age category to participate in the Triple X is U15's (age as of 31 December 2022) in our Junior Team of 2 in the 42km or Team of 4 in 84km. Under Auscyling rules U15 riders are allowed to ride for a maximum of 2 hours and therefore will be limited to a maximum of 1 lap per rider.
Under 13 riders will NOT be given permission to ride as they will exceed the current recommended guideline of 1 hour.
Riders should complete roughly the same amount of laps as each other, however dispensation may be made for mechanical failure.
Please notify the race director if for some reason a team mate has to withdraw from the race.
Technical assistance outside of the race village is not permitted unless from another rider. Riders may replace wheels and other mechanical parts during the race but must complete the race on the same frame.
Teams utilising an ebike will be required to register under the ebike category even if other members of the team are not on ebikes.
There are no seperate age categories for ebike participation.
Riders under 19 are not permitted to race in the ebike category.
There will be no Auscyling National Cup points awarded in the ebike category
