Many of your questions about grades, bikes, start times and entry processes can be found at these super informative links...
There's going to be FREE SKILLS SESSIONS in the morning. There will be sessions for kids and adults*!
Then... It's the prologue! It's short and fast and fun! Expect to race twice. Both times for about 15-20mins. Seems short? You know that's going to feel like an hour in the middle of it all!
GOOD TIMES! GREAT RACING!
RACE ENTRY PROCEDURE & SCRATCHING POLICY: Number pickup and on-the day entry (if available) closes 15mins before your race. Use the SCRATCH button on the race entry page to scratch!
RULES: Rules? we don't need no stinkin' rules... (but seriously... DBAD thats the most important and only DDCX rule)
VOLUNTEERS: We can't run events like this without volunteers! Please sign up below to volunteer half an hour or an hour of your time on the day to help the day run smoothly (eg crossing marshal, rego desk, bbq). Volunteers get free #voli-watts or something immensely powerful...
KIDS: Kids licences are free, and cover you for the race. Unfortunately you have to be under 11 to get one. Other kids (u13 - u19) are subject to a sliding scale based on age, but it's still way cheaper than for grownups. If you are entering children, please also read this - http://dirtydeedscx.blogspot.com.au/p/kids.html
Because of time constraints this we will be doing blended grades for this one (please grade yourself on how serious you take bikes in general, winning low grades when you are quick just gets you side-eye on the podium). Remember this race is really focused on having as much fun as possible racing friends in short bursts in a small area!
