Timing and Race Numbers

PACC will be providing live timing for this event. If you have been issued with a PACC Timing Tag previously, please bring it to the event. For riders new to our races, a tag will be available for collection at the Registration Desk, along with your race number. If you have lost or damaged yours, please purchase one when you register.

Live results will be available during the event - start from here.


Grading advice

SENIORS: Your chosen grade is dependent on both rider ability and your bike type. A drop ('Curly") bar bike (eg road, touring or CX bike) is required to contest any of the series categories. If you have a MTB or Flat-bar hybrid / roadie please choose Open. If you have a CX/Road bike you can contest any grade based upon your ability.

JUNIORS: Junior grading will be subject to age-groups and ability. Note Little Xers is for the youngest children or kids new to cycling not capable of completing the full course on their own and can include balance bikes, bikes with training wheels, tricycles and those new to a pedal bike and a carer is welcome to accompany them around the shortened course on foot. Other grades will be marshaled with club volunteers and carers are not to accompany riders on course.

If you are new to racing CX, but race bikes elsewhere please put your current criterium or road or MTB grade in the handicapping remarks. If you are completely new to any form of racing, we recommend you start in C-Grade unless you know someone you are comparable with and wish to race with them. Grades will be mixed on the course together, but wave-started and timed separately.

Grades available are:
*Women A (Series Category) *Men A (Series Category) *Women B (Series Category) *Men B (Series Category) *C Women (Series Category) *C Men (Series Category) *Open Men *Open Women *U17 Women *U17 Men *A-Juniors
*B-Juniors
*Little Xers


Sign-on will be contactless. Please visit the rego desk and have your name checked off before going on course for the the main practice session. Ensure you have your race number and timing tag on before entering the course.

If you have raced with us before and have lost your PACC Timing Tag or PACC race number (first issued at Xmas Xross 2020), please ensure you purchase replacements when you register. These will be waiting for you on race day in a race pack envelope. We won't be issuing news ones to you on race day if you forget them. If you're picking up a race pack, please use the hand sanitizer before looking for your envelope (packs are in surname alphabetical order).

Riders must have signed on at the rego desk more than 30 minutes before race start so we know you're at the venue. Riders must be ready to start and congregating at the muster point after the finish line 15 minutes before the allocated race start time for the Commissaire’s instructions, and to get in a sighting lap (if you'd like one). Riders will be seeded based on last year's series standings and called up one by one to the starting grid at ~5 minutes before the scheduled start. If you miss your call-up, you will start from the back of the field.


Race Day Reminders:

  • No license, No Race - Riders need a current license. Licenses will be checked at registration, so please bring your license or proof of renewal on the day.

  • No race number, or timing tag, no race.

  • Pits - there will be dedicated pit areas on each course for mechanical assistance. You must enter the pits from the course, and in the direction of the course (which may mean you need to run with your bike to the pit area). Cutting the course or receiving assistance outside the pit areas will result in a DQ.

  • Announcements – Keep your eye on your emails for any important announcements ahead of race day.

  • Respect the venue - we're racing in a natural area, warm up in areas to minimise damage to the vegetation.

  • Covid-19 - consider your actions and how they impact upon others. Give volunteers and other competitors people plenty of room, be mindful of others' mental and physical wellbeing. Stay home if you're sick.
