FAQ's

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!

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.

All ebikes must meet Australian Standard.

Spot checks will be made on all ebikes and any bikes found not to comply with the Australian standards will not be allowed to race.
