Grading

For Handicaps: Please help the handicappers by providing your regular Scratch Race grade and a comment on your form when entering. This helps with an initial grouping of riders by similar ability. The handicappers will then create the handicap groupings and time gaps between each group, based on entries. We require help from the riding community. When we do publish provisional start-lists, please email the handicappers if you see any anomalies as this also helps ensure riders of similar ability are racing each other.

For Graded Races: Please include helpful comments or current form.
