FAQs

Q. If I don’t get around to pre-entering can I still register and pay on the day ?
A. YES (but there is discounted pricing available for online entries. On the day pricing is dearer). By preregistering online, you will save time. Simply collect your race number on the day. No need to line up at Rego desk.

Q. If I pre-enter then can’t make it on the day, do I get a refund ?
A. Yes, if you can’t make it on the day you will receive a refund or a credit, no questions asked. You can scratch online until 6pm on Saturday via EntryBoss. You can still scratch after the event, but you must send an email to grading@skcc.com.au by 1pm the following Wednesday (ie within 3 days post race) or risk losing your refund.

Q. If it rains and my grade is cancelled, do I get a refund ?
A. Absolutely !

Q. How do I claim my race number ?
A. On the day there will be a separate race desk set up with race numbers and a start list in alphabetical order. If you have preregistered online, simply Find your name, find your number, hit the start line in time for your race briefing.

Who Can Race and What Do I Need?

Anybody can race with a current (UCI) racing licence - Cycling Australia or International. Domestic licences from a country other than Australia are not valid unless they are accompanied by a letter from the official Cycling body of the Country the licence originates from authorizing the licence holder to race outside of their Country.

The first time you race you will need to complete an online GRADING FORM.

Information regarding grades, which grade to enter, and SKCC grading policy can be found HERE.

Registration

All riders MUST show a valid licence OR proof of renewal (i.e. printout/PDF of online renewal). SKCC adopts a strict “No licence, no race” policy. If you forget your licence, or proof of licence you can purchase a 3 race licence ($55).

The registration desk closes five minutes before each race start time (see above).

What If I Don’t Have a Licence?

You can purchase a Three Race Membership online from Cycling Australia. https://eventdesq.sportstg.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=main&EventDesqID=14967&OrgID=4912

Like many, if you fall in love with SKCC and choose to take out a full licence, the cost of the Three Race Membership comes off the cost of an upgrade to a full racing membership.

Why Is SKCC Criterium Racing So Popular?

Our resident barista will be selling great coffee, brownies, muffins, drinks and other yummy snacks. Club extroverts call the races, sometimes in Spanish for that Euro feel! We provide toilets, there are plenty of seats for spectators and heaps of parking on Boundary Street.

What If I Have Never Raced Before?

First of all read our First Time Guide to Criterium Racing and Your First Race. SKCC offers “E” (ENTRY) grade every Sunday. E Grade is intended for people with little or no race experience. E Grade is supervised by experienced Total Rush sponsored riders who will assist with riding and racing skills. The first 20 minutes is under ‘control’ (not actually racing). So it’s a great opportunity for new riders to gain confidence, race experience and meet some fellow newbies!
