We encourage juniors ages 11+ to grab a mate and race even if they have never raced before. We want you to come away with a smile on your face and therefore the race director reserves the right to adjust the junior lap or limit a riders laps if it is deemed necessary.
We ask that all junior riders please where possible complete a lap of Jacks Ridge prior to the event to familiarise themselves with the track.
This event is not suitable for riders under the age of 11 and dispensation will not be granted to ride up in other categories.
In the event of wet weather or strengthened Covid-19 restrictions the race may be postponed. If it’s clearly going to be too wet we will make the call by 9pm on Friday 10 December 2021, if unclear then we will call it by noon on Saturday 11 December 2021.
A full refund (less admin costs) will be offered for those unable to attend the re-scheduled event. If any riders want to withdraw from the race and receive a refund please email the club at email@example.com
Covid-19 Safe Precautions
This will be a Covid Safe event and due to the recent changes in the NSW COVID19 regulations all riders and spectators must be double vaccinated to attend. We are also required by law to check proof of vaccination on the day.
Riders will be emailed a Covid safety plan prior to the event.
It is a condition of your attendance that you read this and agree to follow it. A Covid Safe marshal will be present on the day to assist. Please do not attend if you have cold or flu-like symptoms or are feeling otherwise unwell. Please do not attend if you have had direct contact with a person with Covid-19 within the 14 days prior to the event.
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 to participate in this race is 11 (age as of 12 December) in our Junior Team of 2. Under Auscyling rules U13 riders are allowed to ride for 1 hour.
Under 13 riders will NOT be given permission to ride solo.
Riders under the age of 11 will not be permitted to ride.
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.
Rider under 19 are not permitted to race in the ebike category.
Please be aware of other riders and only pass when safe to do so having communicated clearly with the rider.
