Handicapping

If you raced at HCC’s Kew circuit this season you will be expected to race in the same grade you have this season. Lack of training is everyone’s reason to go down a grade, and doesn’t wash with the handicapper. If you have another justifiable reason to change grades please email entries@hawthorncycling.org at least two days prior to your intended race and we will evaluate your request.

If you race at another location in Melbourne please enter for the same grade at the HCC Kew races.

It is the responsibility of each rider to enter into the correct grade, not the person at the entry desk to catch them out. If the race committee is made aware that a rider has entered into a lower grade, and this is confirmed, then they will be disqualified and any win or place money forfeited.

If you are not sure which grade to race, discuss this with the handicapper or the desk entry person who will grade you.

Field Limits

There will be a limit of 40 riders in each grade
