Grade Caps

NCC enforces strict grade caps at our crits in the interest of rider safety. We have been selling out grades regularly over the past 12 months, so encourage everyone to enter early to ensure that you don't miss out. You can scratch with full refund up to nomination closing time.

If you receive one of the five waitlisted places - this means you are first in line if anyone scratches. We will move these riders up if we can, but it is unlikely that you will get to race.

If you get Waitlisted (Doubtful) it is very unlikely that you'll get to race.

Please don't:
-Ask to race with another grade;
-Turn up on the night hoping someone doesn't show;
-Ask to be given special consideration to race.

NCC is a volunteer run club and we hate having to say no to people! We want everyone to be able to race, but it just not possible sometimes.


Prizes

1st-3rd in each Grade, 1st Women in each grade + Preme Sprint
(Women can claim a place and 1st Women)

If you would like to sponsor our monthly Tuesday / Thursday Prize Criteriums, Please reach out to norwoodcc1883@gmail.com or contact us through messenger on Facebook!

To assist our Line Judges, can all riders please claim places following each race. Claim with line judges and commissaires after your event in a timely manner regardless of transponders being in place or not. Thanks.


More Information

Grading

Grading is at the discretion of the handicapper, and not at the whim of the rider. Riders who request grade changes through EB without having their preference ok'd by the handicapper will be placed into their existing grade. Handicapping takes in more than rider fitness, but considers skill, ability to contribute positively to the race and appropriatness. The best way to move up a grade is to win. If you can't win your current grade, you probably aren't ready to move up.

NCChandicap

Please check what grade you have been placed in by the handicapper via the "View startlist" button prior to the event starting. The handicapper reserves the right to handicap riders as they see fit. It is the responsibility of the rider to review the published start list. Please enter relevant information for the handicapper when you nominate. The earlier you nominate, the earlier you get handicapped. Changing of grades on the day is not permitted. Only the Handicapper or the Chief Commissaire may regrade a rider on the day.
Please do not request grade changes to our volunteers on the Sign-on desk

New Riders

First time racing this season? Moving forwards, we will be using AusCycling South Australia's Fixed Number System. When you sign up for your first race, you will be allocated a number for your grade. You keep these numbers and bring them to every crit you race. If you go up a grade, you exchange your numbers when you sign on for your first race in your new grade!

Are you new to racing? Then why not try the AusCycling Australia's 4 week free license, to try racing before committing to a full license, see link below. https://www.auscycling.org.au/membership/other/free-trial

Not quite sure which grade you are? Please feel free to have a chat with NCC Handicapper Peter Varricchio on 0411 118 262. If you have questions about racing please contact NCC on facebook messenger. If its your first race recommend arriving at sign on at least 30min prior to your race starting, to sign on, have your paper work with proof of license. Leave time to pin on numbers, zip tie on timing transponder and warm up / have a nervous toilet break!

If you have never raced a criterium before and not confident in your bunch riding skills, we recommended you attend a Norwood CC + AusCycling SA criterium training session. See the AusCycling SA and Norwood C.C. facebook pages for more details.
