Club Championship notes from HWCC By-Laws - The Club Championship events are conducted in 3 events, Road Race, Time Trial and Criterium and in each of the current club grades. As such, they do not form part of the Winter Aggregate point score, but are scored on the following basis in each of the three events;- First - 10 points plus Gold Medal Second 6 - points plus Silver Medal Third - 4 points plus Bronze Medal Start - 1 point Finish - 1 point. Perform rostered duty - 2 points. Commissaire - 4 points

A special 'Champion's jersey' is awarded to the rider in each category with the highest aggregate points and who has competed in all of the three club championship events. There must be more than one rider, in each championship event, in the category for a jersey to be awarded. In the event if a tie, the winner is determined by the greater number of highest places . If a deadlock on highest places exists, then the rider with the fastest time in the ITT wins.

Women's Races - Women in each event need to claim their places to ensure the club scorers can determine the ladies champions in each grade.

Podium Presentations - First 3 riders will be presented with a podium presentation in each race. There will be separate women's podium presentations if there are 3 or more women entered in a grade. Riders/spectators are encouraged to take photos.

Rollout - All Juniors U19s and younger must have their gearing rollout checked by a club official BEFORE picking up their race number.

Wet-weather Policy - A decision to cancel due to poor weather will only made by the Chief Commissaire with announcements made via the club's social pages. Generally, we race in all weather, except heavy rain or if there are sheets of water on the road surface. Any decision on cancellation will be made as early as possible.

All race entry fees will be refunded if races are cancelled.

Race Scratchings - If riders find they are unable to race after entering, they may 'scratch' themselves up to 5am on race days (3pm for Twilight races) and their entry fee will be refunded. Click on the 'Scratch' button on the EntryBoss event page. Please note that there is a very small cost to the club due to merchant fees, whenever riders' scratch themselves.


This event will be conducted using the current guidelines or rules established by Queensland Government, the Queensland Health Officer, AIS, AusCycling Australia and AusCycling Queensland.
