Start and Race Procedure

  • Riders need to present for their race start at least 10 minutes ahead of the scheduled start time so that they can be called-up by Commissaires.
  • Call-Up: First race of the season, call-ups for Round 1 are based on last year's series points. At all other rounds the call-up order for the first 20 riders will be based on the series standings. After that the time of entry will determine the order. The top 20 riders will be called up individually, rest in number blocks.
  • Riders in timeslots with multiples categories racing: Staggered (delayed) start for riders with shorter race durations with everyone finishing together.
  • Finish: Race officials will calculate the total amount of laps for the fastest category based on the average lap times. The number of remaining laps changes as soon as the leader of the fastest grade crosses the finish line. Once the leader crosses the finish line the race ends for everyone else as soon as they cross the line. This means that for example, riders that are being caught by the leader on the leader’s last lap will not receive the bell (they were shown 2 laps but by the time they come around again the leader has already finished the race).

Race Format and Regulations

Technical Notes
  • CX bikes must run CX tyres - 35mm max width (as written on tyre with tiny allowance for tyre flare on wide rims). Definitely no gravel grinder or Monster Cross tyres in CX Race Category. Riders can race Opens with any tyre, any bike.
  • PITS will be in operation: - As is the tradition in Cross, mechanical assistance must be taken from the designated pit area. Spare wheels & bike changes cannot be taken from random locations on the course - only in the pits. Riders must run the course to the pits if their bike is unrideable. We will run double-sided pits so the max distance to pits should be no more than half a lap depending on course layout.
  • Race numbers and transponder: Every rider will be issued with a transponder (incl. ankle strap) as well as 2 cloth race numbers. All equipment must be immediately returned after the race (same numbers for both days)
Series Points

VICXS is a race series, and series placings are determined by a points aggregate across the series. Please note that riders that need to change grades during the series, can only take half their points with them upon grade changes. Please take this into consideration when selecting your grade.
